After a great summer experience with the firm last year, I am very excited to be joining McMillan LLP as an articling student! I look forward to gaining more experience, honing my skills and taking advantage of the great mentorship programs that the firm has to offer.

I recently received my Juris Doctor from the University of Calgary. One of the highlights of my time at law school was volunteering with Pro Bono Students Canada as part of a project that helps provide legal information to a local women’s shelter in Calgary. The program was a great way to use what I learned in law school in an effort to give back to the community. Before summering at McMillan LLP, I worked as a research assistant in the Faculty of Law at the University of Calgary.

Before moving to Calgary, I completed my Bachelor of Arts in Criminology with a certification in Forensic Science at Simon Fraser University. Outside of work, I enjoy hiking, camping, skiing, and spending as much time outdoors as I can.
