I am excited to be articling with McMillan after a very enjoyable summer experience at the firm!

I received my Juris Doctor from the University of New Brunswick (UNB) in spring 2021. During law school, I was lucky to participate in a number of student-led extra-curricular activities. In my final year at UNB, I acted as the co-president of the UNB Law Feminist Legal Association and the UNB Law Mental Health and the Law Society. I was also fortunate to explore and develop important practice management skills through my involvement with the Fredericton Legal Advice Clinic and the Canadian National Negotiation Competition, where my partner and I placed second in 2020.

Before joining McMillan last summer, I worked as a legal research assistant for the then-Dean of Law at UNB and the current Dean of Law at Lakehead University. Prior to law school, I received my Bachelor of Commerce from the Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary and worked for a year at a boutique consulting firm that specialized in supporting high-growth small businesses in Calgary.

Outside of work, I am passionate about travel, comedy, coffee and community.
