I am excited to return to McMillan as an articling student after having summered with the firm in 2018. During my summer term, I was exposed to a wide array of corporate and litigation files, and I look forward to build upon that education.

During my time at Osgoode Hall Law School, I built on my keen interest in research and writing by participating in various moots and research competitions. I received the Samuel Rubinoff Award for the Most Outstanding Research Paper as well as advanced to the final stages of the Tory’s Competitive Mooting Cup. In my third year, I was nominated by one of my professors for the Tory’s JSD Award for Research and Writing.

I was also fortunate enough to complete a 3-month placement with Amnesty International as part of the International and Transnational Law Intensive, while also serving as the Dean’s Fellow for one of the first year Property cohorts.

Building on experience I gained as a Pro Bono Students Canada volunteer, I spent the summer after my first year of law school at a private-Toronto law firm working on all facets of personal and business immigration.

I received my Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service, from Georgetown University in Washington D.C, after which I spent three years working on regional development, focusing mainly on small and medium enterprises in the Middle East. I then completed a Master in Public Policy at the University of Toronto and served as a Policy Intern for Ontario’s Cabinet Office.

During my free time I enjoy traveling, painting, and attempting head stand variations at my local yoga studio.
