You can’t install carpet in a home you expect Beatrice to live in – she’s been destroying rugs with her dancing shoes before she even lost her baby teeth. Since she was a little girl, she has tried out all different kinds of dance ranging from jazz to ballroom and settled on salsa dancing as her favorite.
While pursuing all different kinds of dance styles, she decided she better use the analytical part of her brain as well, and nothing says a balanced lifestyle like business school :p
After four years of exploring the business world at the Schulich School of Business at York University, Beatrice knew that there was something missing in her studies. Partly on the advice of her mother, who never tires of pointing out that Beatrice enjoys arguing, and because she had thoroughly enjoyed her experiences in mock trial competitions throughout her studies, she found herself at the University of Ottawa to pursue her J.D.
Beatrice then had the good fortune of finding herself in Ian Kerr’s first year contracts class where she heard about his fascinating research interests. Soon after she got the opportunity to work on a business law textbook with Ian, enabling her to explore her interest in corporate law. She has even had the chance to learn about privacy law by assisting on Ian’s submission to the Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics
In the midst of all these activities, Beatrice can be found doing yoga, eating sushi, and, lets be honest, enjoying all kinds of dessert!
