Colleen is a graduate of PCVS. After graduating from high school, Colleen attended Trent University and then completed the two year “Legal Secretaries” program at Sir Sandford Fleming College in Peterborough.

After graduating from Fleming College, Colleen was hired into her first job as a legal secretary with Bill Fox, and for 37 straight years has worked with Bill and his associates.

Colleen enjoys the variety of work she undertakes at Fox Law, as well as the clients she interacts with on a daily basis. She finds it gratifying to identify a particular issue and then working to find the best method to resolve it. And after 37+ years in the field, she still feels like she is learning.

Patty graduated the legal secretary program at Sir Sandford Fleming College, and began working for Bill Fox and his associates a short six days later.

Patty loves working on big, challenging files (especially Estate work) and enjoys the interaction with the great clients Fox Law has.  She loves to test her memory for clients’ names, file numbers and details reflecting her 3+ decades of work.

In 1984 she married her high-school sweetheart, Tony. Family is paramount to Patty.   She and Tony have a son, Matthew (Loyalist DL graduate) and a daughter, Carly (Carleton U, PAPM).

She loves going to the market, spending a lazy afternoon at a beach, driving to the east coast, and taking the odd trip to Punta Cana.  She transcribed her husband’s novels for publishing and likes to play complicated mind games to keep her brain sharp!  She takes enjoyment out of simple things in life.  Her favourite place is sitting on her back deck at home with Tony, enjoying a good hot Keurig, watching the birds.
