Shea was born in Vancouver, raised in the Tri-Cities, and now calls Langley home. She studied political science and economics at the University of Victoria, before moving on to law school at the University of British Columbia. 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.
Shea practices exclusively in family law, an area of interest she developed at law school. Her style of practice focuses on finding creative solutions that fit the needs of all parties, in order to keep matters calm and out of court. In the times where court is unavoidable, Shea is a strong litigator and has successfully argued many cases for her clients in both the Supreme Court and Provincial Court of British Columbia. In each case she strives to make her clients feel comfortable with the legal process, dedicating the time necessary to ensure they understand every available option to resolve their matter.
Shea is a member of the Métis Nation of British Columbia. 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 her two family miniature schnauzers.
Shea currently sits on the Board of Directors for the Langley Community Services Society.
