passionate about social justice.

I feel most inspired when I am working towards systemic change in the legal system, either through research, writing, or providing education. I strive to conduct all my work with cultural humility, and from a place that is trauma-informed. I was called to the bar in 2015, and I currently work with Rise Women’s Legal Centre where I conduct research, primarily on topics related to family violence and the family court system, and provide education.  Prior to working with Rise, I worked with the federal Crown in Winnipeg and in Vancouver. I hold a Master of Laws, from the University of British Columbia (2018), a Juris Doctor from the University of Manitoba (2014), and a Bachelor of Arts from Brandon University (2010). In 2021 I started my PhD in law at UBC.
