Both an instructor and active faculty member, Sheree has chaired and presented at various educational programs for the Society, and has worked to champion the Society in Atlantic Canada.


Sheree will be the Society’s first member of the Executive Committee whose practice is outside of Ontario.


Sheree is a Partner in the Halifax office with a practice in commercial litigation, insurance and alternative dispute resolution law. She has been recognized by Benchmark Canada, Lexpert and Best Lawyers for her excellence in litigation and insurance law.
