What have you been up to since leaving Crandall?

After graduating from Crandall University, I was accepted into the College of Law at the University of Saskatchewan. I chose this law school because the Native Law Centre is located there, and I have a keen interest in legal issues related to Indigenous peoples. After graduating from the College of Law at the University of Saskatchewan, I practiced law for several years in the areas of trusts, secured transaction, banking and finance, and litigation financing related to Indigenous peoples. I then obtained my Master of Laws in the area of the taxation issues related to Indigenous Settlement Trusts. I am currently completing my PhD at the University of Ottawa on the issue of secured transactions on First Nations lands. I am in the process of accepting a tenure track professor position, and plan to stay active in the legal community. I am also committed to volunteering my services at Pro Bono Services where we provide legal services to clients whose access to justice is limited by their low income status.

My research areas relate to property law, commercial law, banking and finance, trusts, secured transactions and Indigenous legal issues. I truly hope more educational institutions are able to get on board with providing students with meaningful knowledge around Indigenous issues in this country. Many are not aware of the history of colonialism and the devastating impacts upon Indigenous peoples.

How has Crandall prepared you for the future?

As I look back I could not have appreciated more the value of acquiring education in a Christian environment where one is free to pray in the classroom and express faith openly. I acknowledge that I am absolutely nothing without Christ. Each step of my journey has been through the careful leading and prompting of my Saviour. It could never have unfolded as it has without the power of the Holy Spirit.

Crandall University set the stage for developing solid research and writing skills. I really benefited from the fact that many of the courses in the Bachelor of Organizational Management program involved research and writing. As an adult learner I have never been particularly keen on exams but prefer to develop hands-on practical skills. The manner in which the courses were set up and classroom discussion served me well in this regard. I felt prepared for the rigorous law school journey.
