Katrina is a lawyer and mediator who lives and works on the ancestral, traditional, and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations, otherwise known as East Vancouver.

She has been involved in a broad range of social justice and human rights movements in this city and across Canada. As a university student, Katrina worked with organizations committed to ending gender-based violence. That experience led her to law school and a career as a human rights activist and litigator. While in law school, Katrina was fortunate to be part of the launch of Pivot Legal Society, a social justice organization in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. After 17 incredible years at Pivot, Katrina became increasingly drawn to dialogue and conflict resolution as a way to support people, organizations, and social movements to achieve positive change.

Katrina now works as a mediator and restorative justice practitioner. A significant aspect of her mediation practice is within the non-profit and housing sector. Her approach is equity-informed and encourages self-reflection, connection with values, relationship-building, and collaborative problem-solving.

Katrina is also a parent, enthusiastic dancer, trail runner, and nature lover.
