Bio:

Shea was born in Vancouver, raised in the Tri-Cities, and now calls Langley home.  After attending secondary school she studied political science and economics at the University of Victoria, and graduated with distinction in 2015. She then worked in administration for two years before beginning law school at the University of British Columbia in 2017. At law school, Shea knew from the start she wanted to be a “people lawyer”. To that end she spent a semester at UBC’s Indigenous Community Legal Clinic, where she assisted individuals with a variety of legal issues. 

At CBM, Shea practices predominantly in family law with additional support to the estate and civil litigation practice groups. She strives to make her clients as comfortable as possible with the legal process and dedicates the time necessary to hear their story and produce creative solutions that fit their needs. 

Shea is Metis on her father’s side and can trace her family line back to Louis Riel and beyond. In addition to law, she is passionate about Indigenous reconciliation. She has strong Canadian roots and enjoys travelling throughout the country visiting friends and family. She also has a love for classical literature, history, and decades music.
