Donna Gee

Managing Partner

I will do my very best for you and find solutions to almost every situation.

Donna Gee was born in Calgary and grew up on a farm outside Banff. She is one of the few registered nurse-lawyers in Canada. Donna received her Bachelor of Nursing (1999) from Athabasca University and her Juris Doctorate (2004) from the University of Calgary Law School. After law school, she articled to a senior family law and general practice firm where she worked as an associate for 5 years before founding the North Calgary Legal Centre in 2010, and then founding and managing the Guardian Law Group in 2016.

Prior to becoming a Registered Nurse, Donna worked for the Society of Management Accountants and developed her entrepreneurial and managerial skills over many years of involvement in business and the customer care industry. Donna’s knowledge of the health care system and her work with seniors and families provide her with a substantial knowledge base in applications of Elder Law, Family Law, Dependent Adult matters, and Estate matters, all of which most interest her in the field of Law.

In her spare time, Donna loves to learn, travel and to scuba dive with her family in places with warm and sunny climates.
