Having recently passed the Ontario and Québec bar exams, I am delighted to be joining the McMillan LLP team as a summer student.

Before obtaining a Bachelor of Law and a juris doctor at the University of Montreal, I received an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Middle Eastern studies and Anthropology from McGill University. I also studied Arabic at the Lebanese American University of Beirut.

I have worked around the world in both private and public sectors and in non-profit organizations, my experiences ranging from working in Spanish for a professor in Madrid, to teaching English in Istanbul.  During law school, I was the student representative of the Litigation committee of the Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers.  I also worked with the management team at Oxfam-Quebec on special projects.

I have volunteered for the UNHCR, Action Réfugié Montréal, the Sauvé Foundation and the Vancouver winter Olympics.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, mini “bounce” trampoline classes and travelling…22 countries so far!
