Born in Edmundston, New Brunswick, I am a graduate of the French Common Law Program at the University of Ottawa's Faculty of Law. During my time there, I worked as a Parliamentary Assistant to the Member of Parliament for Madawaska-Restigouche, was a Research fellow of the Law Foundation of Ontario, and a Research Assistant to Professors Mark Power, Nicole LaViolette, Louise Bélanger-Hardy, and Aline Grenon. My interest for Language Rights motivated me to Presiding the Special Committee of the Regroupement étudiant de common law en français for the review of the Official Languages Act of New Brunswick. I also interned at the Office of the Law Clerk and Parliamentary Counsel to the Senate of Canada and was an Editor for the Ottawa Law Review.
Prior to attending law school, I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Social Sciences from the Université de Moncton, one year of which was completed at the Université Laval. My political science honours thesis is entitled: “Institutions and Laws within the Machiavellian Political Theory”. I was a Research Assistant to Professors André Leclerc and Christophe Traisnel, as well as a Teaching Assistant to Professors Christophe Traisnel and Marie-Thérèse Séguin. I also lectured on the topic of Machiavelli's political theory to students enrolled in SCPO1020: Political Thought I.
I articled at Power Law, a bilingual Canadian boutique law firm that specializes in Administrative Law and Constitutional Law litigation. Before joining Power Law, I was a summer student and an articling student at Heenan Blaikie’s office in Ottawa. I then went on to serve as Law Clerk to the Honourable Henry S. Brown, Justice of the Federal Court.
I am currently completing a Master of Laws (LLM) at McGill University. As of August 2016, I will be acting as Law Clerk to the Honourable Suzanne Côté, Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada.
I am passionate about political thought, ethics, and jurisprudence.
