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:
- 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!
- 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.
- I was a summer camp counsellor for way too long.
- I used to be on the executive of the Black Law Students’ Association of Canada as the National Mentorship Representative.
- I’m a certified group fitness and aqua fitness instructor and personal trainer.
