I have a Bachelor of Arts and Science (B.A.& Sc.) in psychology & political science as well as law degree (BCL/LL.B.) from McGill University. I am currently a staff lawyer with the Legal Services Division of the Centre Francophone de Toronto, a integrated community centre serving francophones in the GTA. I work in the areas of immigration and refugee law, family law and poverty law (which includes work before administrative tribunals in the areas of housing, access to social assistance and disability income and human rights).
During my law studies, I worked at the Mile End Legal Clinic, I volunteered at the Immigrant Workers Centre and I interned at Just Solutions Legal Clinic. Before working at the Centre Francophone de Toronto, I was a duty counsel staff lawyer, articling and summer student with Legal Aid Ontario in the areas of family and criminal law.
My real interest has always been exploring and understanding the ways in which the law regulates and interacts with people living in poverty.
