Having completed my legal education at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law, I am excited to join McMillan as an articling student in 2019.

At the University of Toronto, I have been involved in a variety of extracurricular activities. In my final year, I was the Co-President of the Business Law Society. I also acted as the Director of Business and Development for the Faculty of Law Review, helping promote publication of student academic work. I was also an executive member of the Peer Mentorship Program, pairing incoming students with upper year mentors as well as acting as a mentor myself.

Last summer, I worked as a Summer Legal Student at the Ontario Ministry of Finance, working largely in the area of tax policy. The previous summer, I worked as a research assistant for various faculty members. Prior to law school, I completed an Honours Bachelor of Commerce at Queen’s University. During my undergrad I participated in an academic exchange to Sciences Po, in Paris, France. 

Outside of school and work, I enjoy playing tennis, running and exploring various coffee shops throughout the city.
