Isabelle is excited to be a summer student at West Coast Environmental Law. She holds a BA in literature from McGill University and a master's degree from UVic in interdisciplinary studies in the Law Faculty and Indigenous Governance department. Her master’s research investigates the colonial legal treatment of totem poles.
During the last year of her graduate work, Isabelle worked at the Indigenous Law Research Unit at UVic, with Cowichan and Lower Similkameen communities to identify and articulate those Indigenous communities’ water management laws through oral storytelling. It was a privilege to work with these communities in the context of this important work.
Isabelle is currently a law student at UBC. This past year, she volunteered her time through Pro Bono Students Canada at West Coast Legal Education and Action Fund, an organization that promotes gender equality. She also served as an editor at the UBC Law Review. Isabelle lives on Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh, and Musqueam territory. She likes hiking, playing the cello, and walking her dogs.
