Jessica returned to Weilers as an articling student after working as a summer student in 2021. She obtained her Juris Doctor from the University of Manitoba’s Robson Hall Faculty of Law. Prior to law school, Jessica graduated from Lakehead University with an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Political Science Pre-Law and was awarded the Dean’s Medal for the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities.
During law school, Jessica was an active member of the Robson Hall community, serving on the executive committee of the Robson Hall Mediators and volunteering with Pro Bono Students Canada. In her third year she completed an externship with the L. Kerry Vickar Business Law Clinic, where she had the opportunity to provide legal help to entrepreneurs and non-profit organizations. Throughout her time at law school, she received awards for the highest standing in corporate law, criminal law, wills and estates, and family law, and made the Dean’s Honour List.
Outside of the office, Jessica enjoys camping throughout Northern Ontario, pottery, and spending time with her dogs. She also volunteers with the United Way of Thunder Bay.
