My political involvement is what inspired me to pursue a legal education. Through my experience being involved in party politics, I have seen just how important it is for women to be represented at all levels of a party, from membership all the way up to the executive board of a party.
I am currently pursuing a dual legal qualification in English Law and French Law at the University of Exeter, which gives me a unique perspective on both common law and civil law jurisdictions. I have also served on the Board of the Liberal Party of Newfoundland and Labrador as Chair of the Women’s Commission and used this role to actively promote women’s participation within the Liberal Party of Newfoundland and Labrador. I hope that by being elected as a Director at Large with Equal Voice, I can further promote women’s participation in politics at all levels and within all parties in Canada. I have personally benefitted from the work of Equal Voice when I had the opportunity to participate in the Daughters of the Vote program in Newfoundland and Labrador, and it would be an honor and a privilege to contribute to their ongoing work across Canada and inspiring women of all backgrounds to become more involved in the political process.
