Laurie has a long history as an in-office legal assistant and paralegal. Soon after receiving her honours diploma in paralegal studies in 1993, she began her career working as legal secretary for a sole practitioner. She then worked as a legal assistant in a large lawfirm and finally as both a legal assistant and then paralegal for a governmental legal department. She has worked in various areas of law including family, civil litigation, real estate, estate planning, probate work and tax law. While on maternity leave after the birth of her third child (back in 2008), she began the process of opening a virtual paralegal/legal assistance practice, which is how Halo Secretarial Services was “born”.
A new chapter, *this* chapter, began in 2015 when Laurie made the decision to adjust her brand a little and more strongly highlight her expertise in paralegal services, rather than the more general “secretarial” services she had previously marketed. Thus we come to the present time and the introduction of Halo Paralegal.
On a personal note, Laurie is a mama to 3 wonderful and fast growing boys, and she shares her life with an amazing and and supportive husband. She has an office mate too, her loyal rescue dog, Poco.
Outside of work and family Laurie has many interests, including walking, reading, and even coaching soccer.
