Ginger joined Pushor Mitchell with experience in all sides of criminal law, from defending clients in a wide range of criminal offences, to prosecuting both for the Federal Public Prosecutions of Canada and for the Provincial Department of Justice.
After earning her Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and History in 2008, Ginger’s educational pursuits took her to Halifax, where she earned her Juris Doctor Degree at Dalhousie University in 2011. With a keen passion for criminal law, Ginger worked with the Legal Aid Commission in St. John’s, Newfoundland, for three consecutive summers and her articles and then moved on to private practice, specializing in criminal defence and federal prosecutions. She then decided to seize an opportunity to work with the Department of Justice.
Ginger has appeared in a wide range of criminal offences at all levels of Court, from minor regulatory offences to lengthy Supreme Court trials. She has spent the majority of her career inside a courtroom and plans to use this range of experience to vigorously defend her clients. She was called the Newfoundland Bar in 2012 and the British Columbia Bar in 2015.
Ginger has strong roots in Kelowna as the third generation of her family to settle here. Outside of the office, fitness and nutrition form a big part of Ginger’s life, and she is always up for a new challenge. She looks forward to once again pursuing her favourite sport of waterskiing on the Okanagan Lake or snow skiing up at one of her favourite ski hills. She also has a keen interest in sports and looks forward to enjoying everything the Okanagan has to offer.
