I was born and raised in Regina, Saskatchewan. I attended McGill University for my undergraduate studies, completing a Bachelor of Arts degree. I then returned to the Prairies to study law at the University of Saskatchewan. During my legal studies, I edited and wrote for the College of Law’s magazine, the Caveat Lector.

I articled at a prominent regional firm in Saskatchewan, where I completed a formal rotation of both solicitor and litigation practice areas, exposing me to many different areas of the law. I was called to the Saskatchewan Bar in 2019. While practicing in Saskatchewan, I was fortunate enough to continue to develop both my solicitor and litigation skills. In 2020, I made the move to Victoria. My practice continues to be mixed, allowing me to have a comprehensive understanding of the issues both inside and outside of the courtroom.

I greatly enjoy assisting clients navigate their unique circumstances, and aim to provide clear and pragmatic advice and solutions.

In my spare time, I enjoy running, road cycling, and playing soccer.
