Isabelle is an Associate at JFK Law in the Vancouver office. She holds a JD from UBC with a specialization in environmental and natural resource law.

While there, she volunteered her time through Pro Bono Students Canada at West Coast Legal Education and Action Fund working on gender equality issues and at Community Legal Assistance Society working on residential tenancy issues. She also served as an assistant editor at the UBC Law Review. After completing law school, Isabelle clerked at the BC Supreme Court.

Prior to law school, Isabelle earned a BA in literature from McGill University, and a master’s degree from the University of Victoria in interdisciplinary studies in the Law Faculty and Indigenous Governance department. Her thesis examines the ongoing capitalist and colonial appropriation of Indigenous knowledge and cultural expressions, including exploring this problem within Indigenous legal orders to offer suitable remedies.

During the last year of her graduate work, Isabelle had the privilege of working at the Indigenous Law Research Unit at UVic, collaborating with the Cowichan and Lower Similkameen Nations and their oral stories to identify and articulate those communities’ water management laws. During law school, she worked at West Coast Environmental Law, where she further developed her interest in the intersection between Indigenous legal orders, Aboriginal law, and environmental justice.

Isabelle is a settler living on Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh, and Musqueam territory. In her spare time, she can be found walking with her dog Gus.
