After summering with GR in 2020, Mikaela completed the Juris Doctor program at Osgoode Hall Law School at York University. She previously studied Criminology at Western University, earning her BA with distinction before beginning law school. Mikaela was elected president of one of the largest student-run clubs on campus called the Western Pre-Law Society during her time at Western.
During her first year of law school, Mikaela was elected Vice President of communications for the student government of her school. In this capacity, she worked with a team to deliver comprehensive programming to law students. Additionally, Mikaela also founded the Law Students’ Society Quarterly (LSSQ), a magazine to be issued each season that highlights student life on campus. She created a segment of the LSSQ where law students can feature their writing on current legal events of their choice, allowing them to practice their legal writing skills. During the summer after her first year, Mikaela worked for a full service firm as a summer student, gaining practical hands on experience.
In her spare time, Mikaela enjoys personal fitness, taking cooking classes, and downhill skiing.
