Doris brings over eight years of experience working in criminal and family law to her role as Connect’s Legal Administrative Assistant (LA). Since graduating from the LAA Program at CDI College in 2007, Doris has developed knowledge and expertise in all facets of running a successful law practice, from office management administration to court filings and procedures.

In her spare time, Doris is happiest reading or baking. She also enjoys travelling with her husband whenever possible. Doris is very active in her spiritual community, and regularly provides volunteer administrative assistance to her church.
