I am excited to be articling with McMillan after a very enjoyable summer experience with the firm. Throughout my summer, I gained experience in several practice areas, and had thorough training and invaluable mentorship. I look forward to continuing my professional growth with McMillan.

I received my juris doctor from the Peter A. Allard School of Law (“Allard“) at the University of British Columbia (“UBC“). While at Allard, I was active in student life, serving as the president of the Allard Law Students’ Society, the business manager for the UBC Law Review, and as a peer tutor. I received various awards, including the course prize in taxation and the Mr. Justice Walter Kirke Smith Memorial Award for excellence in contributions to the work and life of the faculty. Throughout law school, I was able to explore several different areas of law by participating in the Canadian Competition Law Moot and the Business Law Clinic, and working as a research assistant for a family law professor.

Before law school, I obtained my bachelor of arts, with a major in speech sciences at UBC. Throughout that time, I worked in retail management and volunteered as an assistant to a speech therapist. I also spent a year in Victoria, B.C., working for a technology startup.

During my free time, I enjoy cooking, travelling, and long walks with a good podcast. I am also passionate about the arts, and try to see as much theatre and as many dance performances as possible.
