I am an articled clerk at Foster & Company. I am very excited to have the opportunity to continue my legal education and to enhance 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, learning about local craft breweries with Ladies Beer Connection, and networking with Fusion Fredericton.
