About Amy

Amy is a member of the Business Law team, and focuses her practice on tax issues for her business clients including incorporations, reorganizations, acquisitions, succession planning, trusts and estate planning.

Amy was born and raised in New Germany, Nova Scotia, and now shares her home in Halifax with her husband, her daughter and son and her husband’s parents. She has continued her training by completing Parts I and II and III of the In-Depth Tax Course offered by the Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (formerly The Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants).

Amy is the Chair for Halifax’s Young Practitioners Steering Committee of the Canadian Tax Foundation. In her spare time, she plays soccer and has recently developed an interest in the practice of yoga - that is, of course, when she’s not spending her time with family and friends.
