Marney has over 28 years experience in civil litigation, including dozens of trials and hundreds of mediations.

Marney came to the role of mediator because as counsel, she frequently found herself slipping into the role of peacemaker or problem solver, and sometimes right into a mediator position. Seeking out a solid foundation of training through the Strauss Institute for Dispute Resolution was a natural step, and gave a solid and principled foundation to what came naturally to Marney in her interactions with colleagues, disputants, friends and family. It seemed the most logical step, then, to move to a solely mediation practice in 2017. 

Marney is committed to continuing to learn and grow as a mediator, and participates in professional skills mediation training courses on a yearly basis, as well as seeking out mediator colleagues in Canada and the United States with whom to engage in exchange of ideas and sharing of knowledge and experience. Marney has written and presented in the area of mediation and negotiation, and plans to continue to grow and learn in this area in the years to come.
