I am very excited to be working as an articling student at McMillan, having completed my summer articles with the firm in 2019. Over the summer, I had the opportunity to work in a wide range of practice areas and learn from the mentorship of many inspiring professionals.
I recently completed my juris doctor at Thompson Rivers University (TRU), where I received the course prize in constitutional law, acted as the community liaison for the TRU Animal Law Advocacy Club, and assisted with organizing the TRU Law Conferences. I also volunteered with the TRU Pro Bono Society, through which I worked with the MS Society Volunteer Legal Advocacy Program to provide legal assistance to clients affected with multiple sclerosis. In my third year, I completed an exchange in Germany at the European University of Business and Law where I received training from legal practitioners and educators from around the globe. During the summer following my first year of law school, I worked as a summer student at a family law firm, gaining experience on both collaborative and litigious files.
Prior to law school, I completed a bachelor of arts at UBC’s Kelowna campus, and concurrently, an honours specialization in neuropsychology at the Kelowna General Hospital. I balanced various volunteer and restaurant service positions with my studies.
Outside of work, I enjoy trying new restaurants and cuisines, tasting new wines, and escaping for a new adventure. I am a former competitive dancer, and an avid traveller.
