I live in Vaughan, Ontario with my spouse and two amazing daughters.
I am a lawyer who is currently completing a PhD on government ethics laws at Osgoode Hall Law School. I have practiced law in both the private and public sectors and have taught courses in law, public policy and philosophy. I am a contributor to the upcoming book “Honest Politics Now: A Democratic Necessity” to be released this April. In addition to my legal background, I am a rare disease patient and advocate. I sit on the Research Ethics Board at SickKids, the Board of Directors for the Canadian Organization for Rare Disorders (CORD) and am a member of the working group on research for Rare Disease International (RDI), an organization that represents the global rare disease patient community on the NGO Committee for Rare Diseases, which has consultative status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council.
