Jesse practices primarily in the areas of family law, and general litigation. Jesse completed her articles with Morelli Chertkow and was called to the Bar in September 2019.
Originally from Toronto, Jesse moved with her family to Kamloops during high school and graduated from Sa-Hali Secondary. She then moved to Victoria to attend the University of Victoria where she received her Bachelor’s degree. After working at the University of Northern British Columbia in Prince George for a four years, Jesse returned to Kamloops to attend Thompson Rivers University’s Faculty of Law, graduating in 2018. During her studies, Jesse had the opportunity to participate in the National Sports Law Negotiation Competition in San Diego, CA and in the Kawaskimhon National Moot (which is Cree for “speaking with knowledge”) which incorporates indigenous legal orders alongside federal, provincial and international law. Jesse remains keenly interested in the intersection of indigenous and colonial legal systems.
Jesse is excited to be able to remain in Kamloops as part of the Morelli Chertkow team and serve the community she considers home. Outside of work Jesse enjoys anything to do with rugby and exploring the Interior and Chilcotin regions with her husband, son, and perpetual puppy Otis.
