WHAT I DO
I am an employment lawyer and commercial litigator with Dentons Canada LLP
HIGHLIGHTS OF MY PRO BONO WORK
I am the contact person for Dentons' pro bono work in Ottawa, a regular volunteer to the Ottawa Law Help Ontario office, an active project ambassador for Flip Your Wig for Justice and most recently, I spearheaded the involvement of Dentons' offices across the country with the Refugee Sponsorship Support Program (RSSP). In addition, I also provide personal services to the RSSP (assisting with things like drafting Memoranda of Understanding) and have used my RSSP skills outside of the workplace as part of a community refugee sponsorship group.
WHY I DO THIS PRO BONO WORK
"To those to whom much is given, much is expected." This is our family motto and it helps to guide me in all that I do. I am blessed to have been given freedom, an education, health and so much more, and it is my responsibility to pay it forward.
ONE COMMENT TO ENCOURAGE OTHERS
What one puts into pro bono work will be received back in spades in terms of a feeling of satisfaction.
