Rebecca received her Ph.D. in 2015 from the Carleton University Department of Law and Legal Studies, and was the first ever graduate of that program.

Rebecca has been an Ontario lawyer since 2003. She worked in private practice from 2003 – 2009, starting at a large firm, doing a wide range of litigation work. She also worked for six years as Staff Lawyer, Law Reform and Equality, to the Canadian Bar Association, then as a Policy Counsel with the Federation of Law Societies of Canada. Subsequently, Rebecca did criminal prosecution work as a per diem Crown Attorney with the Ministry of the Attorney General in Ottawa. She then shifted gears and joined the management team of Gowling WLG, serving as Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Manager for a large, multinational law firm.
