Sarah began her articles with Carbert Waite LLP in August 2017 after graduating from the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Law. Before beginning her articles with Carbert Waite LLP, Sarah was a summer student with the firm in 2015. Prior to law school, Sarah obtained her Bachelor of Commerce with a major in Marketing from the University of Calgary.
While in law school, Sarah volunteered with Pro Bono Students Canada’s Emergency Protection Order program. Through this program she helped Legal Aid Alberta Duty Counsel lawyers as they assisted applicants prepare and process Emergency Protection Orders in situations where violence or threatening behaviour between family members created a need for immediate protection. Sarah also volunteered with the University of Calgary Faculty of Law’s Student Ambassador Program, which reaches out to students who have been admitted to the Faculty of Law and allows them, as well as other prospective students, to connect with current students.
Sarah is actively involved in all areas of the firm’s practice and volunteers with the Civil Claims Duty Counsel Program.
