Why did you choose Bennett Jones?

I initially chose Bennett Jones for its excellent practicum program for students graduating from S.A.I.T. I was grateful to have been offered a position proceeding my practicum and have enjoyed working here ever since.

What's your educational/training background?

I received my Legal Assistant Diploma from S.A.I.T. I have also taken courses in interior decorating at Bow Valley College and creative writing at the University of Calgary.

What's your favourite thing to do outside of work?

I like to travel, read, write and have been known to throw a softball every now and again.

What do you love about working here?

The people! Everyone has heard a joke or two about the stigma associated with lawyers, but coming from someone who works with them every day, I can honestly say I've never encountered such a dynamic, respectful and even fun group of people. The support from my colleagues and the helpful on-site departments make coming into work feel more like a privilege than a job. I especially enjoy seeing the senior partners in aprons flipping pancakes during the Calgary Stampede!
