Brooklyn earned her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, B.C. in 2014, and her Juris Doctor from the University of Alberta in 2017. During law school, Brooklyn was actively involved in Student Legal Services in the Civil and Family Law Project and periodically assisted in the Criminal Law Project. From 2015-2017, Brooklyn also was a member of the editorial board of the Alberta Law Review, which is the most cited legal journal in Canada. She then went on to serve as the Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Law Review from 2016-2017. Brooklyn received several awards and bursaries throughout law school that recognized her contributions to Student Legal Services and her academic achievements, but she is particularly proud of the Raymond James Memorial Prize, which is awarded annually to the student receiving the top mark in Trust Law.
After graduating law school, Brooklyn completed a clerkship at the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench under the guidance of the Honourable Madam Justice Yungwirth. During her clerkship, Brooklyn was exposed to a variety of unique legal topics and was able to further develop her research and writing skills.
Although she is originally from B.C., Brooklyn now considers Edmonton home. Outside of work, Brooklyn enjoys spending time with her fiancé and her two cats, reading, exploring Edmonton’s food scene, and watching copious amounts of Netflix. She also loves to travel and has visited four continents over the past 10 years. She hopes to cross two more off her list in the near future but, given her distaste for the cold, she is willing to skip Antarctica.
