Catherine is currently in her third year at the University of British Columbia’s Allard School of Law. She thoroughly enjoyed administrative law in school and this interest led her to pursue a career in the field of municipal law at Lidstone. Previously, she completed a BA (Honours) in psychology at the University of British Columbia where she wrote her thesis on sacred values and pro-environmental behaviour. In addition to school, she has worked as a Scheduling Clerk for BC Supreme Court Scheduling. It was this experience of supporting the court through providing accurate documentation and party availability that inspired her to volunteer with Pro Bono Students Canada. In this current role, she works with Access Pro Bono’s staff lawyer to draft legal documents for low-income individuals with upcoming appearances in civil chambers.
Catherine grew up in Wuhan, China and is fluent in Mandarin Chinese.
