Lawyer Candidate

I am currently an Articling Student at Russell Alexander Collaborative Family Lawyers. I first joined the firm in 2018 and have continued to grow and learn from our remarkable team of legal professionals while I continue working towards being called to the Bar in Ontario.

I have had a fascination with law and justice from a young age, and at the age of 7, I avowed my dream of becoming a lawyer. I am committed to assisting our clients through what is a traditionally difficult time, and my goal is to make the process easier in any way that I can.

I graduated with Honours from Queen’s University in 2018 and obtained my Law Degree from the University of Liverpool in 2020, graduating with First-Class Honours. During my time at law school, I was honoured to receive awards for my academic achievements, including the Family Law Prize. This achievement is awarded for the best assessment performance in Family Law, sponsored by the University of Liverpool School of Law and Social Justice.

Outside of work and the legal world, I enjoy spending my time at the gym or exploring and travelling. I’ve been fortunate to venture outside of Canada, travelling to Australia, Africa, Europe, America, the Caribbean, and the United Kingdom. Although I was born and raised in Ontario, the cold weather is not for me, so I jump at the opportunity to travel to warmer weather whenever possible.
