I am thrilled to be joining McMillan as a temporary articled student this summer.
I recently completed my second year of the JD program at the Peter A. Allard School of Law (Allard) at the University of British Columbia (UBC). During my first year at Allard, I volunteered at the ID Support Clinic through a placement with Pro Bono Students Canada (PBSC) and acted as a Program Coordinator for the Allard Law and Business Society (ALBS). This past year, I had the pleasure of serving as Co-President of the ALBS and as Allard’s Student Representative for Thomson Reuters. I also acted as a student clinician at Allard’s Business Law Clinic, providing legal services to small businesses and non-profit organizations.
Prior to law school, I obtained a Bachelor of Science at UBC with a major in Microbiology and Immunology (MBIM), graduating with distinction. A few highlights of my undergraduate experience include publishing two research papers and presenting my findings at the 2020 and 2021 MBIM Research Symposium. I have worked at two Vancouver-based biotechnology companies – one as a Process Development Co-Op Student conducting lab work, and another as a Summer Student in the company’s Legal Department. I have also worked at a start-up consulting firm in Nova Scotia, where I collaborated closely with the founder to write operational policies for our clients.
In my spare time, I enjoy figure skating (I am a beginner and started this past February), playing the piano and trying new restaurants. I am also a big musical theatre fan!
