Kate joined Jones Emery as an articled student in October 2019. She graduated with her JD from the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University in May 2018 and then immediately plunged into an LLM (also at Dalhousie), which culminated in a 230-page behemoth contemplating whether or not the Charter of Rights and Freedoms applies to the Canadian Anti-Doping Program. Previously, Kate obtained a BA in English (Carleton, 2007) and an MA in English (University of Victoria, 2009), which indicates she has a propensity for ruining the utility of a general degree by continuing in school (or, possibly, that she just really likes reading).
Kate mainly practices in the areas of real estate, labour and employment, and wills and estates, but she also works with sports organizations and is keenly interested in all facets of sports law and sports dispute resolution.
Kate grew up in rural Nova Scotia. She likes to spend as much time as possible outside running, skiing, or biking. She perhaps has an unhealthy addiction to chocolate, and is always happy to escape to faraway lands for adventures.
