I am excited and fortunate to be returning to McMillan to complete my articling term. I previously spent my second-year summer with the firm and look forward to building on the skills I developed during that time.

I recently completed my Juris Doctor degree at the University of Ottawa, where I strived to be an engaged member of the school community. Providing mentorship is an important goal I have set for my career and so a highlight of my experience was assisting fellow students in applying writing and research strategies as a peer mentor with the Legal Writing Academy. I also played a role in training and preparing future writing leaders completing the program. I stayed active developing my advocacy skills by attaining success in a series of competitive moot court competitions: I was a semi-finalist in the first-year moot and the Harold G. Fox Intellectual Property Law moot, and won best presentation for my panel at the Copyright Policy moot.

As I obtained an Option in Law and Technology while completing my degree, I gained valuable legal research experience as an intern exploring hot-button issues in copyright and technology with the Samuelson-Glushko Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic and as a research assistant investigating the emerging legal app market for Professor Amy Salyzyn. Before law school, I completed a Master of Science degree at Western University, during which I researched and helped to develop modern solutions for insect pest management in the agricultural industry.

Outside of work, I am an avid professional wrestling fan and an amateur entomologist. I enjoy exploring new cities and look forward to learning my way around Toronto.
