Biography

Carolyn’s dedication to workers rights and labour law began with her C.A.W. sponsored internship at the International Labour Organisation in Geneva, and her Labour Law focused studies at Western Law, under the mentorship of Arbitrator and Professor, Michael Lynk. Her commitment to assisting labour unions and workers grew with each successive experience in her career including her Co-Op positions with the Ontario Ministry of Labour and the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal, her articles at a leading labour law firm in Toronto,¬† and her studies at American University’s Public International Law Program.

In 2011, Carolyn returned home to Vancouver, bringing her persuasive advocacy and negotiation expertise to advance worker rights from B.C. She has continuously honed her skills and expertise across a diversity of industries including post-secondary and public education, fire service, construction, and professional sport. Whatever the industry or issue, Carolyn brings her keen sense of what is needed to solve the problem before her.

Carolyn is pleased to assist and represent clients in English and French languages. Her goal is to strategically avoid and resolve disputes before they escalate whenever possible. Where litigation is the best path to a dispute’s resolution, she steadfastly represents clients before labour arbitrators, Human Rights Tribunals, Labour Relations Boards, and the courts.

Carolyn practices as a Professional Law Corporation.
