In Karyna's Own Words:

"My colleagues tell me that I am straight shooter with a heart of gold. I work well under pressure and get to the core of the issue, while ensuring that people feel understood and heard. It works well in my practice area as it involves tight deadlines, high pressure, high stakes, and high emotions. I offer practical solutions to unique and complex legal problems. My goal is to simplify and ultimately resolve your problem. I am a great communicator with a great sense of humor, which I believe helps everyone relax while receiving professional help."

Karyna graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science (with Distinction) in 2016. In June 2022, she obtained her Juris Doctor (with Distinction).
