I hang out with friends and play ultimate frisbee!
I have a Bachelor of Medical Sciences from Western University and an MSc in Anatomy and Cell Biology from Western University. I am currently in the final stage of my program. I have completed my university courses and the provincial examinations for becoming a licensed lawyer. The final stage is to gain practical experience by working with a practicing lawyer. This is called articling. When I complete this 10-month articling experience I will be "called to the bar" and will start my career as a lawyer.
My career path has had many twists and turns and I've enjoyed every step. It's allowed me to experience, learn, and develop a diverse set of skills. More importantly, I got to figure out what I really want for my career. When I finish my law degree, I plan to specialize in intellectual property law. Check my LinkedIn profile for more details about my career path to date.
It's always a good sign if you feel afraid about taking on a particular challenge. It means you're guaranteed to grow from it.

I read and write all day. I rely a lot on my STEM knowledge to understand and analyze complex issues. I am usually asked to provide an opinion on an issue. To do this, I follow a general process. First I identify the research question. Then I identify the context/situation. Next I come up with a plan for research and then do the research. After that I summarize my findings and come up with a conclusion or opinion.
