I am an associate at Foster & Company. I am very excited to have the opportunity to continue my professional development with such a talented group of lawyers and staff.
I hold a Bachelor of Nursing, from the University of New Brunswick and a J.D. from Dalhousie University’s Schulich School of Law. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work as a nurse for the Nova Scotia Health Authority prior to graduating from law school in 2016.
During my eight-year nursing career, I gained experience in critical care prior to accepting a position as the coordinator of a women’s cancer prevention clinic at the Nova Scotia Health Authority. While the shift from nurse to lawyer is not a typical career path, my love for the nurse’s role as an advocate for patients and families within the healthcare system motivated me to pursue a career as a full-time advocate in law. I look forward to using my education to assist you with your legal challenges.
While living in Halifax I was appointed to the Halifax Community Health Board where I advocated for more accessible and equitable health services in the Halifax area. I also had the privilege of providing medical assistance in the disaster response to the cholera outbreak in Haiti.
At the Schulich School of Law I was a research assistant and a peer mentor. I served on the Wellness Committee through which I organized wellness events, facilitated stigma reduction initiatives for mental disability and addictions issues, and assisted students who required academic accommodation for various disabilities.
I grew up outside of Fredericton in Prince William, New Brunswick and enjoyed my time at Harvey High School where I have many fond memories. Since returning home to New Brunswick, I have enjoyed spending time with my many nieces and nephews, practicing yoga, volunteering as the New Brunswick Liaison for the Atlantic branch of the Legal Education Action Fund, and learning about local craft breweries with Fredericton Ladies Beer Connection.
