Her law certificate and her desire to help others and to work with the public led her to complete her law degree while working at Revenu Québec. Her real passion for legal matters and justice pushed her to go to l’École du Barreau and become a lawyer. After graduating from the Quebec Bar, she wanted to work in private practice. As criminal law has always been her passion, she did her internship at Jean-Claude Dubé Avocats S.A., where she was also able to practise professional law.
