Since 2007 I have worked as legislative counsel in the Legislation Section of the Department of Justice Canada, drafting and advising on legislation and the legislative process. I have drafted legislation touching on all areas of Canadian federal jurisdiction (including international law, criminal law, Aboriginal law, intellectual property law, administrative law, pension law and banking law). I regularly lead internal Department seminars on various matters related to legislative drafting and the legislative process.
I joined the Department of Justice Canada in 2005, as legal counsel to the Department then known as Indian and Northern Affairs Canada. Prior to joining the Department of Justice, I was counsel in the litigation department of a large national firm.
Before attending law school, I enjoyed a (very brief!) career as an orchestral musician.
