I recently completed my second year at Osgoode Hall Law School, and I hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science and Criminology (Honours) from the University of Toronto. During my two years at law school, I have been involved in a number of activities, including pro bono work with Pro Bono Students Canada, and editing for Osgoode’s newspaper (Obiter Dicta). I have also been, and continue to be, an active member of the Osgoode Labour and Employment Law Society.
I developed a strong interest in labour and employment law during a summer internship with the Employment Law Unit of New York City’s Legal Aid Society. It was in this position that I gained real exposure to a myriad of workplace conflicts between employers and employees, and this led to a desire to get ahead of these conflicts and prevent them from arising in the first place. This is why I am excited to start my legal career in management-side labour and employment law with Hunter Liberatore Law. I look forward to learning about advising employers on how best to circumvent workplace conflicts, and how to protect their interests while simultaneously complying with employment and human rights legislation.
In my free time, I enjoy reading a good book, as well as spending time with my family, friends and dog.
