Sinéad is an associate at OKT committed to working with First Nations to realize their visions of family and community well-being. Her focus areas are Indigenous governance, child welfare, negotiation, and litigation. The best part of her job is meeting with First Nations in their territories.

In the child and family sphere, she works with First Nations to support the exercise of inherent jurisdiction, uphold and strengthen Indigenous laws, and defend and assert their rights in court.

Sinéad received her JD from the University of Toronto Faculty of Law.

Sinéad volunteers on the Board of Directors of Aboriginal Legal Services and as an organizer for community-based approaches to ending violence against Indigenous women. She loves long walks, eating walleye, cold water swimming, reading, and being on the land.
