Practice Description - Sharon was called to the Bar of Ontario in 2011 after obtaining her J.D. from Western Law in 2010. While at Western Law she had the opportunity to intern at the International Labour Organization in Geneva, and led both the Diversity Committee and Labour Law Society.

Sharon gained her expertise in workplace issues (labour, employment and human rights) when she began her career in private practice for a prominent union-side labour law firm in Toronto. Following that, she went in-house at a major public service union working as a litigator. Sharon then spent many years as a Senior Mediator at the Ontario Labour Relations Board, conducting close to a thousand mediations, with extremely high success rates. After working as a mediator, Sharon returned to private practice as a workplace investigator, conducting numerous complex investigations as well as doing mediations, workplace restorations, and workplace assessments.

Sharon is extremely passionate about the work she does, is highly qualified, and puts 110% of herself into all that she does. In her work, it is always her goal to be fair, respectful to everyone involved, apply an emotional intelligence lens, and to take a trauma-informed approach.
Background - Sharon has conducted close to a thousand mediations involving represented and non-represented parties, in the context of unionized and non-unionized workplaces, and on a wide variety of workplace issues. As a trained lawyer, Sharon is highly skilled at evaluative mediation but is also well-versed in facilitative mediation. She takes the time to analyze every dispute, listens to the parties, and determines the best approach. However, beneath the blend of facilitative and evaluative mediation used, her foundational approach is always that of transformational mediation.
