Jade grew up in Shawnigan Lake and is very proud to call Victoria her home. Before pursuing her education in law, she completed her undergraduate degree at the University of British Columbia obtaining a Bachelor of Science. After living in places such as Saudi Arabia and France, Jade gained a unique set of experiences which contributed to her decision to travel abroad in pursuit of her legal education.
Moving to the always hot and sunny Townsville, Queensland, Jade attended James Cook University and obtained her LL.B. with First Class Honors. While in law school, Jade proudly won the Maurice Blackburn Social Justice Award for her work with the student body while sitting on the boards of the James Cook University Student Council and the University’s Law Society.
Jade is excited to be commencing her articles with Velletta & Company in August of 2017. Although her interests reside in family law, Velletta & Company offers a broad range of experience in many different areas of law which Jade will actively engage.
In her spare time Jade can usually be found either at the gym or in the kitchen. She enjoys working out, going for long hikes, scuba-diving, baking goodies, and spending time with friends and family.
