B.A. (Hons), Legal Assistant
phone: 416-533-0040 ext. 230
Kathleen first joined bakerlaw as a paralegal placement student from Seneca College in spring 2019. It was through this placement that she realized Human Rights was where she wanted to be. She jumped at the opportunity to rejoin the bakerlaw team as a legal assistant in September 2019 after completing and passing her Paralegal licensing exam in July 2019. Kathleen is currently not practicing.
Before entering the Seneca Paralegal Program, Kathleen completed her undergraduate degree from Wilfrid Laurier University’s Brantford campus and graduated with distinction. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Honours Criminology and Honours English with General Contemporary Studies.
Funnily enough, it was Kathleen’s time she spent between university and college in a retail environment where she fully realized that wherever she ended up in the future, she wanted to help people. Kathleen spent three years working in multiple positions within a retail environment that catered to plus sized women. There she began to recognize and appreciate that a seemingly simple act of assisting someone with clothing could make their day and help with their confidence. At bakerlaw she feels she has found kindred spirits in people who truly want to help others.
When she’s not at work, Kathleen enjoys snuggling up and trying to read a good book while her cat and dog jostle for more attention.
