Natalie is pleased to return to the FDRIO board of directors, having first served from 2015-2017, when she departed for maternity leave. Since then, Natalie was named Partner at Stanchieri Family Law and she has continued to work on behalf of FDRIO’s Family Violence and Complaints committees. Her most notable contribution to FDRIO to date was conceived when Hilary Linton invited Natalie to join her in planning and co-chairing the first FDRIO Unconference.
Natalie was called to the Ontario bar in 2006. She earned her LL.B. at Osgoode Hall Law School, after having graduated cum laude with an Honours B.A. from York University in 2002. She has a passion for alternative dispute resolution and her preferred area of focus in her legal practise is collaborative family law. Natalie runs her own collaborative small study group, giving like-minded professionals the opportunity to brainstorm with one another whilst enhancing their skills, strategies, and collaborative toolkits.
In addition to her roles with FDRIO, Natalie also serves as a director for York Collaborative Practice, and she is a member of East York Kiwanis.
When Natalie is not at work, she most loves spending time with her daughter.
