Counsel at Public Prosecution Service of Canada
BA, Criminology, York University, 2010 | JD, Faculty of Law, University of Windsor, 2014
‘After being the lead prosecutor in a mock trial in grade 7, I became very interested in criminal law. I pursued this passion by taking Criminology at York and completing law school at the University of Windsor Faculty of Law.
I joined the Public Prosecution Service of Canada as a summer student and I am now a Federal Crown Attorney on the Anti-Organized Crime Team in Toronto. My practice focuses on high complexity wiretap cases involving conspiracies, large-scale drug trafficking and importing, organized crime, search warrants and emerging Charter issues. I have appeared before the Ontario Court of Appeal on a number of occasions and have conducted several jury trials. I am also a member of the PPSC Student Committee and mentor to prospective and current law students.’
