Before attending law school, Jennifer completed a MA in History at the University of Victoria, and a combined BA in History and Indigenous Studies (Honours) at the University of Toronto. 

Jennifer has practical experience in technology law. She summered at a fintech-focused boutique law firm in Singapore, and competed in the Canadian Copyright Moot. Her strong interest in litigation and advocacy was stimulated while acting as an intern at the Centre for Research-Action on Race Relations (CRARR), the Montreal Native Women’s Shelter, and as a summer student at Legal Aid Ontario. These experiences have provided her extensive research skills and the ability to work in a quick and dynamic atmosphere. 

At the University of Toronto, Jennifer was a national and varsity level athlete in both wrestling and rowing. In wrestling, she earned bronze at the Canadian Wrestling Championship and was the Ontario provincial champion. In rowing, she won the Royal Canadian Henley in the lightweight four and earned a fifth at the Canadian Rowing Championship. She is no stranger to hard work and defying the odds. 

In her spare time, Jennifer is an avid cook and enjoys hiking and other outdoor adventures.
