I am a lawyer in the firm’s class action practice group, where I act exclusively for plaintiffs. I also act for victims in civil sexual assault cases and have experience handling plaintiff personal injury claims. I have appeared before the BC Provincial Court, the BC Supreme Court, and the BC Court of Appeal.
I was born and raised in Vancouver. I obtained a BA in psychology from the University of British Columbia in 2016 and a JD from the Peter A. Allard School of Law at the University of British Columbia in 2020. I was called to the BC bar in 2021, after completing my articles at Murphy Battista LLP.
While attending law school, I volunteered as an instructor for the Legal Education Outreach Program, a client intake coordinator with Access Pro Bono, and as a student with the UBC Innocence Project, where I had the opportunity to do meaningful work preparing and submitting an application that led to the Project’s first acquittal. I have worked at Murphy Battista LLP since 2017, while obtaining my law degree.
