I am thrilled to be joining McMillan this summer as a temporary articled student. I look forward to working with such an incredible and accomplished team.

I recently finished my second year of law school at the University of Alberta Faculty of Law. This past year, I served on the University Appeal Board as an elected panel member reviewing decisions and sanctions imposed under the Code of Student Behaviour. Throughout law school, I have been active in the Women’s Law Forum as a member of the Philanthropy Committee, Media Committee and Fundraising Committee. This year, I was fortunate enough to plan and moderate events on behalf of Dean Barbara Billingsley as the Co-Chair of the Women in Law Speaker Series. In my first year of law school, I volunteered with the Legal Education and Reform Project, where I provided legal referrals and information to low-income members of the community.

Prior to law school, I completed a Bachelor of Commerce with distinction at the University of Alberta School of Business. I majored in Business Law and Economics and minored in Political Science. My undergrad gave me the opportunity to advocate for students as I was the Director of Student Wellness for the Business Students’ Association. During my degree, I worked as a barista and volunteered with the Edmonton Humane Society.

Outside of my studies, I love going to new cafes, doing spin classes, and spending time with my friends and family. I also enjoy live music and hope to be able to go to some concerts soon.
