"I strive to advocate for my clients and offer a balanced approach to their workplace issues through creative problem solving and strategic intervention.

I firmly believe that each individual is entitled to a workplace free of unjust interference and will strive to ensure your rights are maintained and protected. I am drawn to the human aspects of working with people in the workplace and I take pride in cultivating strong relationships based on trust and understanding. I practice in all areas of employment and human rights law in the workplace.

Prior to joining HHBG, I worked as a litigation lawyer at a mid-sized firm in the Fraser Valley focusing on insurance defence, commercial litigation and employment law. I gained valuable experiences working in all aspects of litigation and have appeared at all levels of court in British Columbia. Further, I was a participant in the CBA Young Lawyers International Program and worked with UNICEF in Hanoi, Vietnam to advocate for the rights of marginalized children. My work varied from lobbying for legislative reform, to advocacy for policy and community based reform to ensure compliance with international human rights standards.

I was born and raised in Surrey and pursued an undergraduate degree at Simon Fraser University. Upon completion, I began law school at the University of Victoria graduating in 2013. I have been an active member of the legal community having sat on the boards of the Surrey Bar Association and the CBA Young Lawyers Section. I am fluent in English and Punjabi.

While not practicing law, I enjoy travelling, running and spending time with my family and friends.
