Hannah loves learning. This love has led her around the world, observing and absorbing whatever culture surrounds her, and turned her into a master student of school and of life.
“MT+Co. embodies and imbues what it means when we say that ‘the law is about people’. Relationships are at the centre of this firm, and it’s amazing what happens when your motives for doing exceptional work stop being overburdening and start being life-giving. MT+Co. does outstanding work in challenging areas of law; but at the same time, the people at MT+Co. do not pass up an opportunity to laugh together, look out for one another, and make each other’s lives just a little bit better.
“I chose MT+Co. because I knew that I was passionate about litigation, the realization of reconciliation, and rejecting the status quo.”
Hannah is passionate about protecting people and the environment and is currently exploring ways to express these passions through the practice of law. She is an aspiring “ladygator”, working with and following in the footsteps of Erin Reimer and Joelle Walker.
Hannah was also a Policy and Programs Assistant with the Government of Ontario – Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (“MOECC”), Resource Recovery and Policy Branch.
Hannah obtained her Juris Doctorate from the University of British Columbia in 2020. During law school, she spent a semester working at the Indigenous Community Legal Clinic in Vancouver’s Downtown East Side; served as a research assistant in criminal, refugee, and environmental law; and captained her law school intramural soccer team. Prior to returning to MT+Co for her articles, Hannah clerked for two justices of the Court of Appeal for British Columbia.
