“Through my extensive work experience, I have had the opportunity to gain a lot of knowledge and skills in many different areas of law and work on many files from start to finish. Through interactions with clients and team members, I have demonstrated a high level of interest, empathy, trust and foremost confidentiality that has enabled me to become who I am today. For that I am grateful and I can say I truly love what I do.”
During her spare time, Jennifer enjoys walks, doing yoga, swimming, travelling, crafts, and spending time with my family and friends.
