After Alice graduated from her Business Administration course with honors, she commenced working at a trust company in Truro in 1982. Shortly thereafter, Alice began her career in the legal industry, at one of Truro’s largest law firms. She then moved to Dartmouth in 1988 and started working for a small, general practice law firm in downtown Dartmouth, until the lawyer she was working for retired in 2013. Subsequently, Alice worked with Jessica Lyle at Sealy Cornish and moved to the Touchstone Team in January 2020. For the past 20 years she has also worked part-time in a psychiatric setting, which has equipped her with skills and experience in assisting our Estate Administration clients during their most difficult times.
