Director of Outreach

What I do here:
I join OJEN with a background in law, teaching, diversity and inclusion. I hold a bilingual Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree in political science and philosophy as well as a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Civil Law degrees. Prior to joining OJEN, I articled with the Department of Justice, worked as a Wellness Advisor in the area of mental health, and worked as a Human Resources Advisor in Employment Equity, Diversity and Inclusion at the Department of Innovation, Science and Economic Development.

Five Things I Did Before OJEN:

  1. I was in the Extended French program in school, and then I received my Bilingual Certificate of Excellence at Glendon College (York University), and then, as if I couldn’t get enough, I did law school in English and French (shout out to McGill!) and later I received my Attestatiion de connaissance du français du l’Office québécois de la langue française. J’aime le français!
  2. I’ve taught summer school (English, French and Math) to elementary school and high school aged children and I’ve tutored a bunch of students over the years.
  3. I was a summer camp counsellor for way too long.
  4. I used to be on the executive of the Black Law Students’ Association of Canada as the National Mentorship Representative.
  5. I’m a certified group fitness and aqua fitness instructor and personal trainer.
