More About Jessica

Jessica is an Associate with Bishop & McKenzie. She received her First Class Honours Bachelor of Arts in Political Science in 2017, and her Juris Doctor in 2020.

Relentless and effective at the office, Jessica is equally determined in all she does. During her education, Jessica worked with the Student Legal Serves Family Project. She has also lent her expertise to Pro Bono Students Canada with the Queen’s Bench Amicus Program. No matter the complexity of a challenge, Jessica always puts the needs and goals of her clients first. Sometimes work is a sprint. Other times, it’s a marathon. Jessica has the training and experience for both. Alongside her excellent academic record, she was also a successful middle distance sprinter for the Golden Bears and Pandas Track and Field Team.

Jessica volunteers with her church and within the track and field community. She also enjoys lacing up her sneakers for runs through the river valley. And when time provides, Jessica embarks on rugged trips to the mountains where she hikes, camps and kayaks. To balance things out, Jessica loves to sample Alberta’s fine craft beers.
