Sarah practises immigration, refugee and citizenship law and has successfully represented clients in various judicial and administrative settings across Canada. She moved to Vancouver Island in 2014 following several years of practice at a national law firm in Toronto, Ontario.
Sarah’s keen interest in immigration and refugee law developed from her family history: her father, to whom she was very close, was a lawyer and Chairperson of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada, and her mother is from a family who immigrated to Canada from Lithuania through the refugee re-settlement program shortly after the Second World War.
She enjoys reading, binge-watching TV shows and visiting her family on Hornby Island. She speaks fluent French.
