I am delighted to be joining the team at McMillan this summer as a temporary articles student. I am eager to gain hands-on experience and develop my legal and professional skills in McMillan’s collaborative and collegial work environment.

I recently completed my second year of law school at the University of Victoria. This past year, I competed in the Harold G. Fox Moot for Intellectual Property. I also had the pleasure of serving as Treasurer for the Uvic Law Wine Club. Last summer, I volunteered as a Clinician for the Law Students’ Legal Advice Program and gained some valuable experience and knowledge, which I am looking forward to developing further at McMillan.

Prior to law school, I attended UBC and received a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. While at UBC, I volunteered in my community through the Rotaract Club of New Westminster and worked part-time as a server.

In my free time, I love trying new restaurants, cooking, and spending time with my friends and family. I also enjoy travelling and am currently trying to learn to speak Spanish.
