Our team at Sharon B. Silbert Professional Corporation Family Law + Mediation is growing! We are excited to welcome Vanessa Tharen as a mediation intern. Vanessa recently completed her studies in Family Mediation at York University and is now working towards accreditation as a family mediator. Vanessa also has a Master of Arts in the field of sociology from McMaster University, where her research touched on various issues affecting families, including divorce and separation, child rearing, child mental health, parenting and disabilities, and familial immigration.
Vanessa is a dedicated “dog mom” who spends most of her free time chasing after Roxy, her 4 year old Collie-Lab mix. She also enjoys spending time on the ice, as a former figure skater and coach. We are excited to welcome her to our team and look forward to you getting to know her!
