Canada Lead NRF Transform | National Director, Knowledge and Innovation
I joined Transform with a focus on changing lawyer mind-sets. Getting our legal community to think and work differently by creating business solutions for clients that address specific pain points is critical. This often means a change in process, a push towards diverse skillsets and the leveraging of advanced forms of technology to scale solutions.
I’m motivated by those who develop innovative frameworks and approaches to the delivery of legal services and products. I chair our Canadian Innovation Investment Steering Committee where we evaluate ideas that our people come up with. I’m always amazed at the quality of those ideas and how many of them get executed and implemented at our firm.
I also believe strongly in mental health and diversity. I’m a certified mental health first aid officer and feel that it’s our duty to help others suffering from mental health. I also sit on our Canadian Race Equity Council and belong to our Canadian Origins Network because diversity in the legal profession and in the innovation community makes us stronger, gives a voice to different perspectives and encourages a sense of belonging.
