I am extremely excited to join the McMillan team as an articling student after recently graduating from the University of Toronto Faculty of Law.

During my time at law school, I immersed myself in the dynamic community becoming heavily involved in extracurriculars. As a former competitive athlete, I participated in multiple intramural sports, primarily hockey and soccer, and served as the Vice-President of the Faculty of Law Athletic Association. In this role, I organized the faculty’s intramural teams, ensured accessibility for all students and addressed student concerns. A highlight of this experience was working with the University-wide Intramural Sports Council to draft new rules and policies around issues that plagued the intramural program for years. I also served as a Senior Editor for the Critical Analysis of Law Journal, where I oversaw a team of student volunteers and edited academic articles relating to social science intersections with the law.

I spent my 1L summer working at a sports agency on NHL arbitration cases and my 2L summer working as a Research Assistant under a renowned Labour and Employment law professor. Prior to law school, I completed a Bachelor of Management and Organizational Studies degree from Western University where I received the Gold Medal for the highest overall grade within the Public Administration Honors Specialization.

In my spare time I enjoy remaining active through weightlifting, as well as recreationally playing hockey and soccer. You can also find me cheering on the Toronto Maple Leafs or Toronto FC.
