Michelle joined the Touchstone Team in January 2021, to provide corporate, tax and trust paralegal assistance.  Michelle worked with both Jamie and Jessica at her prior firm, and they are very happy to be working with her again.

Michelle worked her way through Nova Scotia Community College as a single parent of two young children and graduated with honors in 2002. Michell has worked as a paralegal with two prominent law firms prior to joining Touchstone.  She provides legal assistance in all facets of commercial, corporate, and tax related transactions.  She also assists the estates team with the preparation of trust documentation.  She works closely with our team as well as directly with clients, third parties, and other professional advisors to allow for each transaction or reorganization to be completed in an efficient manner.   

Michelle is originally from Cow Bay, but has called Eastern Passage home for a number of years.  She has two children, Julia and Jennifer, and two dogs, Koda (American Akita) and Maisie (Boston Terrier).  Michelle loves animals and the beach, and has a keen appreciation for Jason Momoa.
