Kate practises in the area of sports, real estate, and estate planning. Her sports law work includes dispute resolution, adjudication, case management, and advocacy. She is keenly interested in all facets of sports law and sports dispute resolution and continues to works towards obtaining additional qualifications and education to help her in this field, as well as her other areas of practice.
Kate joined Jones Emery as an articled student in October 2019 and was called to the bar in 2020. She received her JD in 2018 from the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University and then immediately plunged into an LLM (Dalhousie, 2020), contemplating whether or not the Charter of Rights and Freedoms applies to the Canadian Anti-Doping Program. Kate also has a BA in English (Carleton, 2007) and an MA in English (University of Victoria, 2009). She has a propensity to ruin the utility of a general degree by continuing her education in specialized topics (and also she really likes reading).
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.
