I am fortunate to be completing my articles at McMillan. Having worked as a second-year summer student with the firm in 2019, I continue to be impressed by the breadth and complexity of tasks assigned to me, and the mentorship provided by the firm’s litigators.

As a first-year summer student, I worked on a wide range of litigation and tribunal matters with the in-house legal team of a leading national property and casualty insurer. The year prior, I was an intern at Queen’s Park in the Office of the Leader of the Official Opposition where I assisted the director of issues management and communications.

Debating first drew me to law. In 2013, I won the World Individual Debating and Public Speaking Championships (WIDPSC) in Durban, South Africa, a goal I had set for myself after winning the Debate category of the WIDPSC 2012 (Brisbane, Australia) and the Debate category of Canada’s 2013 National Public Speaking Championships.

At Osgoode, I continued to develop my oral advocacy skills, competing in the Davies Securities Law Moot, the Winkler Class Actions Moot, and the Hicks Morley Labour & Employment Moot. On multiple occasions, my teams were finalists.

For two years of my time in law school, I was the editor-in-chief of Obiter Dicta, Osgoode’s 90-year-old student newspaper. Over this time, our editors modernized the paper’s governance structure, improved print quality and increased sponsorship revenues.

In my free time, I enjoy painting in watercolour, improving my golf game, and taking wine education classes.
