1. What is something not many people know about you?
I played high school basketball.
2. How did you first get involved with FACL?
I first became involved with FACL as a member and I learned so much attending a number of really interesting events about EDI in the legal profession. I was also excited and honoured to support FACL as the Area Representative for Kamloops, BC.
3. What advice would you give yourself if you were to go back in time?
I would have advised myself that "what matters most is how you see yourself."
4. What has been your favourite FACL event or initiative so far?
My favourite FACL event was the "BIPOC Women in Law: Navigating Race, Gender and Equity in the Profession." This event featured lawyers who highlighted the impact of racial, gender-based and intersectional barriers to equity in the legal profession. It was inspiring to hear what practical strategies and resilience tools lawyers can use to navigate systemic barriers and advance equity in the legal profession.
