Having recently graduated from the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Law, I am delighted to return to McMillan for my articling year.

At University of Toronto, I was an active member of the school’s peer mentorship program, providing guidance and support to first and second year students. I served as an Associate Editor with the Journal of International Law and International Relations, and I also worked with Advocates for Injured Workers, a community legal aid clinic. At the clinic, I co-coordinated the student volunteer program and appeared before the Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal (WSIAT).  

Before coming to University of Toronto, I studied French, Spanish, and Political Science at Toronto’s Glendon College. After leaving Glendon, I completed an MA in Global Governance at the Balsillie School of International Affairs in Waterloo, where I focused on international security and environmental change. This led to some work with the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI), as well as some intermittent travel to Japan to participate in a project on challenges shared by Japan and the West.  

Outside of the office, I love to cook, garden, and travel.
