Monica Rudd was raised in White Rock and completed her undergraduate degree at Simon Fraser University.
Monica attended law school at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, where she was a research assistant for various academic projects as well as for the Curriculum Review Taskforce. She was also a research assistant for the Agricultural Workers’ Legal Learning Exchange in collaboration with UBC Okanagan. Monica was Editor-in-Chief of her school’s student newsletter and Assistant Editor of the Canadian Journal of Comparative and Contemporary Law. She also spent a summer volunteering as a clinician at the Law Students’ Legal Advice Program.
Monica developed an interest in family law and alternative dispute resolution in her first year of law school. Having personally experienced the divorce process, she understands it is a stressful time that compels you to turn your mind to your entitlements. She believes that the most rewarding work involves keen problem solving, as well as the opportunity to be empathetic and attentive to our clients’ interests. Prior to law school, Monica was an English language instructor.
Monica is pleased to have returned to the Lower Mainland and to have joined the Metzner Law team, where she is eager to contribute to the welfare of clients and their families.
