- Position: Lawyer
I was born and raised in Cranbrook, B.C. and am very proud to be a member of the Métis Nation BC.
I first became interested in becoming a lawyer after taking a law course in high school and this soon became my dream.
I graduated high school with great marks and several scholarships. However, tuition for university is steep and the scholarships covered very little of my tuition. I attended the University of Lethbridge for four years and obtained a degree in History and graduated with great distinction.
I owe Métis Nation BC greatly for their incredible support, which extended beyond financial. Because of this support I was able to focus on my schooling and I achieved high marks and an invaluable education.
Because of my high academic achievements I was accepted in numerous law schools across Canada. I attended the University of Alberta Law School where I continued to excel academically and graduated in 2014.
I am now articling at the law firm of MacPherson, Leslie & Tyerman LLP which has a strong Aboriginal Law Practice Group that I hope to join upon completion of my articles.
I wish to thank the Métis Nation British Columbia for their continued support, and in particular, for those two years of my Undergrad. It truly made a difference in my life.
