I graduated from Petitcodiac Regional High School in 1995.
For my undergraduate program in Psychology and Health Studies at Queen's University, I studied everything from Physics and Chemistry to Philosophy and Religious Studies.
After receiving my Arts (Honours) degree in 2001, I moved to Vancouver Island, British Columbia to attend law school at the University of Victoria. My law program was, like my undergraduate program, quite varied. My courses ranged from the very theoretical and academic, to the wholly practical.
In January, 2007, I completed my Bar Admissions Examination in Fredericton, New Brunswick.
I have been working and volunteering in the law field since September 2001 in different capacities, including law firms, human rights and humanitarian groups, law libraries, etc.
In October 2007, I started my own general practice in Petitcodiac.
I was called to the New Brunswick Bar in October 2007, and am a member of the Law Society of New Brunswick and the Canadian Bar Association.
Petitcodiac has been my family's home for many generations past, and I hope for generations to come. I have a great deal of affection and pride for my home town. I have lived all over Canada and traveled the globe, but I always knew I would come back home. I am absolutely delighted to be living, and operating my own law practice, in Petty.
Being an active member of my community is very important to me. I have been a member of the Petitcodiac Kiwanis Club since 2008. Our club focuses on raising funds to help out those in need in our community. I am also a board member of the Petitcodiac Boys and Girls Club, and a past board member of the Kodiac Place, a local non-profit housing corporation for seniors.
I coach my children's basketball and soccer teams and am a member of the Parent School Support Committee and the PRS Playground Committee for Petitcodiac Regional School.
I live in Petitcodiac with my husband Anthony Plume and our three children, Sophie, Maddie, and Connor.
I enjoy my family and my friends, travelling, camping, gardening, computers, graphic design, drawing, games, baking, making clothes, crafting, philosophy, debating, and organizing.
I love my job. I truly enjoy practicing law -- especially in general practice (as opposed to specializing in one area), and especially in Petitcodiac. Being a lawyer is constantly challenging, rewarding, and stimulating.
I like the work so much that, if you happen to be among the apparent majority who is a little leery of lawyers, I am certain I can change your opinion of us for the better, for good.
