Engaged and inquisitive, Caroline is quickly able to build rapport with people when investigating a claim or potential claim.

What is your favourite location to travel to in BC for work?
I’ve been lucky enough to have the opportunity to spend a couple of days in Ucluelet and Tofino during a particularly sunny week in the summertime; if only there had been more time to spend on all the beautiful beaches that the area has to offer.
How do you explain your job to your family?
I get off easy in this department as my father is also a lawyer. My mother is well versed with tuning out legal speak at the dinner table!
What is your dream car?
I would love a brand new fully loaded Ford F-350 Super Duty King Ranch truck. Of course its intended purpose would be to tow that shiny new horse trailer with built in living quarters; that is my version of the perfect land yacht.
