ASSOCIATE (on leave April-August 2020)
Jaime graduated from the University of Ottawa Law school in 2014 and is no stranger to hard work. She attended law school as a mature student while her husband was away with the military for four years. She single-parented her three children and worked part-time while attending law school.
Jaime first worked at Jewitt McLuckie when she was completing the Law Practice Program in 2015. Jaime credits her time at JMA for solidifying her passion for the law and social justice. She went on to work at the Community legal Services of Ottawa for 4 ½ years serving low income members of the community. She practiced Immigration and Refugee law as well as housing law and other aspects of poverty law. Jewitt McLuckie welcomed Jaime back as an associate in February 2020.
Jaime is a proud mother of three and supports her partner’s ongoing career in the military. She is a co-creator of an Indigenous book club and enjoys reading, beading, feminist cross-stich, the outdoors and cycling.
As of April 2020, Jaime is on temporary leave from JMA in order to serve with the Canadian Armed Forces assisting in their COVID-19 pandemic response.
