Osgoode Hall Law School, J.D.
Tufts University, B.A., magna cum laude
Whitney joined Mathews Dinsdale as an articling student in our Toronto office after completing her Juris Doctor at Osgoode Hall Law School.
During law school, Whitney was a caseworker for the Osgoode Business Clinic and a member of the Labour and Employment Law Society. She also participated in several moots and negotiations, which sparked her interest in advocacy as well as in labour and employment law.
Prior to attending law school, Whitney received her Bachelor’s degree at Tufts University where she studied history and art history. Following her graduation, she worked as a paralegal for a Boston-based law firm that specialized in toxic tort litigation including the defense of asbestos claims. Through this experience, Whitney was exposed to the importance of occupational health and safety law.
In her free time, Whitney enjoys playing pickleball, reading, and trying the city’s newest cafes and restaurants.
