She remained with the firm, practicing in the area of wills and estates until her appointment to the Court of Queen's Bench in 1996. She was appointed Queen's Counsel in 1988. Cecilia was a natural teacher. She was course head of the Wills and Estates Bar Admission Course, a member of the Board of Directors for the Legal Education Society of Alberta, a panelist for numerous legal education seminars, a mentor in the Wills and Estates Program and a sessional instructor at the Faculty of Law.
