Katie is a passionate advocate developing a broad civil litigation practice, including defamation, complex commercial litigation, trusts and estates, shareholder disputes, professional liability and regulation, securities litigation, insurance coverage disputes, and public and administrative law.

Katie comes to practice with an exceptionally strong foundation—both academically and in practical advocacy. During her time at Dalhousie’s Schulich School of Law, Katie distinguished herself in the Laskin Moot, a competition centered on Canadian administrative and constitutional law, where her team achieved first place in written advocacy. She graduated on the Dean’s List and earned numerous other scholarships and prizes, such as the Frank Covert Memorial Scholarship for academic excellence and speaking skills, the Arthur R. Moreira, QC Memorial Prize in Equity and Trusts, the Nathalie Goyette Prize in Tax Law, and the Robert E. Bamford Memorial Award, recognizing her outstanding combination of academic excellence and dedication to the law school community. Katie also served as Co-Chair for the Dalhousie OUTLaw Society, and continues this engagement as a member of Adair Goldblatt Bieber’s Inclusion Committee.

Prior to joining the firm, Katie clerked at the Nova Scotia Supreme Court and then practiced at Lenczner Slaght LLP, where she was a pioneering contributor to that firm’s Data-Driven Decisions program, an aspect of which (The SCC Leave Project) received Precedent Magazine's 2021 Precedent Innovation Award.

Informed by her background in information systems, Katie is passionate about exploring how the empirical analysis of previous judicial decisions can inform and improve strategic decision making in subsequent cases. Following her undergraduate degree, Katie worked for the Government of the Northwest Territories in various capacities, including systems analysis and project management roles.
