I am excited to return to McMillan to complete my articles after a unique and fulfilling summer experience. I am keen to strengthen my legal skills and explore the intriguing complexities of the law.

In my final year at Western Law, I was President of the Gender and the Law Association. I aimed to provide a sense of community to its members despite learning virtually and apart. I am also proud to have supported the establishment of the McMillan LLP-Western Law Mentorship Program. This new initiative pairs Western Law students with lawyers from McMillan who will help guide BIPOC, members of a racialized group, and first-generation university students through the challenges of law school.

In addition to these activities, I sharpened my advocacy skills through competitive moots. These made for many memorable moments during the academic year.

Prior to law school, I graduated with an Honours Bachelor of Arts with High Distinction in international relations and history from the University of Toronto. I then continued on in academia earning two Master’s degrees in international history from Columbia University and The London School of Economics and Political Science. After my first year of law school, I worked as a legal affairs intern at an internationally recognized not-for-profit organization in Ottawa.

My favourite things to do in my free time are baking and taking care of my two Australian shepherds, Oscar and Hamish.
