I am excited to join the team at McMillan following the completion of my Honours Bachelor of Science and Master of Science at the University of Toronto and my second year of study at Osgoode Hall Law School.

At Osgoode, I have enjoyed gaining practical legal experience and contributing to the school community through various volunteer pursuits. I am currently a Clinic Fellow with the IP Osgoode Innovation Clinic where I provide legal intellectual property information to start-ups, entrepreneurs, and small business owners. I also volunteer as a mentor through the Osgoode Women’s Network and serve as a Peer Counsellor through the Career Development Office where I provide guidance and support to my fellow students at Osgoode.

A highlight of my second year of law school was participating as a team member representing Osgoode at the US Patent and Trademark Office Patent Drafting Competition. We were the first Canadian team to win the Midwest Regional Round of the competition and advance to the national final.

Prior to this summer, I have enjoyed working at my family’s independent grocery business in Lindsay, Ontario. I now look forward to the opportunity to gain experience in a legal environment as a summer student at McMillan.

My favourite activities in my free time include balancing Pilates and HIIT fitness classes with searching for the best Italian truffle pasta in Toronto.
