Since 1983, Kathleen has been an active mediator in a variety of areas (family, civil, workplace, wrongful dismissal, estate, child protection, etc.) and has taken multiple training(s) in a wide variety of areas. As a result, she has developed both advanced communication and relationship skills together with advanced investigative interviewing and assessment skills.

As Director of the Mediation Centre Inc., and its divisions,The Family Mediation Centre and Mediation North, Kathleen has demonstrated strong case management skills in the overall management of the service and in individual files which she has personally mediated.

As the issue of power imbalance is central to the considerations of mediation and, in particular, family mediation, Kathleen has taken in depth training. She was invited to be a participant in the pilot training for the State Justice Institution (ABA) and the Academy of Family Mediators for the Domestic Abuse and Custody Mediation (Linda K. Girdner, Ph.D). This together with the course work for the L.L.M. (ADR) York University, Osgoode Hall Law School has furthered her ability to use techniques to redress power imbalances.

As an active family lawyer since 1975, Kathleen is most familiar with legislation, court process and the family justice system and is familiar with the use of appropriate software tools such as DivorceMate, Summate, Spousal Support Advisory Guideline Calculation software, Child Support Guideline software including pro rate section 7 contribution calculations, Financial Statements and Net Family Property Statements.
