I am

a student

I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of British Columbia (UBC) and received a B.A. in Honours Philosophy with Distinction. 

Before transferring to UBC I attended Capilano University and Lethbridge College. At both institutions, I played for their CCAA women's volleyball teams. 

Presently, I am in my second year of law school at Toronto Metropolitan University's Lincoln Alexander School of Law. 

a dog mom

I have a three-year-old mini-labradoodle named Rue (yes, she is named after Zendaya's iconic role in Euphoria)! Rue has quickly learned various tricks including selfie, bow, and snoot as seen in the video.

I am passionate about educating dog parents on the essential safety precautions that should be taken to protect pets and communities. To learn more follow Rue's Instagram account: @rue.thedoodle

a tech enthusiast

I am passionate about technology, for reasons far beyond the enjoyment that my Apple ecosystem and Nanoleaf's bring me. For one, I hope to share information and learn more about technology solutions for a more efficient lifestyle. 

I also hope to pursue a career within the intersection of law and technology to ensure that tech remains user-focused and adequately regulated so that it does not mimic or exaggerate harms presently existing in society. 

and I am an author

I am super excited to announce that my first book will be launching before the winter holidays!

I have been working on my book This Grief Thing F**king Sucks for four years, and I am so excited to finally be able to share it with others. 

This book is full of poems and discussions reflecting my experience of grief as a young adult. I hope that by sharing my story, I can be a comforting voice to other young grievers.
