Born and raised in Calgary, AB, Canada, to a family of engineers, Kaela’s childhood was a combination of hard work and time management. Her family also valued togetherness, they often created memories by traveling and doing exciting activities. Even her extended family shared the same passion for family fellowship, and large family dinners were often a nightly event. Her wholesome family upbringing imbued her with an enthusiasm to provide a shared happiness to families of all shapes and sizes through family law.
After graduating from high school in Canada, she moved internationally to Oregon and finished her undergrad at Willamette, a small liberal arts college outside of Salem. She recently graduated from Penn State Law in May of 2021, and after searching for top family law firms in the country, found Modern Law in Arizona. So she relocated, yet again, to begin her career in family law with our team. Kaela is currently waiting on her results from the Bar exam and assists our legal team as a Law Clerk.
Why Family Law?
“I got into family law because I wanted to work with people, and make what can be one of the hardest and saddest times in someone’s life a little more bearable. I want to be the type of lawyer that makes a tough or stressful situation more manageable. I love trying to solve or mitigate people problems; and I like that in family law I get to stand up for my clients, to represent their best interests, or their children’s best interests.”
