Cheryl A. Widdrington

Licensed Paralegal

Hi, I’m Cheryl

I was born in Barrie, Ontario. After graduating from the University of Western Ontario, I worked and lived in England for three years, while traveling through parts of Europe. I eventually returned to Barrie to settle permanently. How could I not? Barrie’s community atmosphere and the abundance of activities available at your doorstep are a positive attraction to this area.

Family, friends, sport, and animals fill my world with love. 

I have a passion for helping others. I have worked for many years in the social services field, family law, and supporting our youth. I particularly enjoy and learn from the innocence of our youth and the wisdom of our elders. 

My spare time has been filled with playing and coaching hockey, baseball, and volleyball. Today you will find me golfing in and around Simcoe County and exploring the forest trails with my labrador retriever, Ila, who has quite the personality. (although some days, I pretend she is not mine; kidding!)

I am a passionate community supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness, Heart & Stroke Foundation, and the Alzheimer’s Society.
