Kacie (she/her) joined Ecojustice in July 2024 as a staff lawyer in K’jipuktuk/Halifax.

After earning an art history degree at the University of Western Ontario, Kacie moved to Nova Scotia to attend Dalhousie’s Schulich School of Law on a full scholarship. She immediately fell in love with Nova Scotia’s natural beauty. Upon graduating, she returned to Ontario to article at the Federal Court of Appeal. However, after being called to the bar in 2018, she quickly came back to Nova Scotia to clerk at the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal. She clerked there until 2020.

From 2020-2024, Kacie practised criminal law as a Crown attorney with the Nova Scotia Public Prosecution Service. She prosecuted cases at the Nova Scotia Provincial Court and Nova Scotia Supreme Court. She is excited to use her litigation and legal research skills to address the biodiversity and climate crises and to advocate for environmental justice for all.

In her spare time, you can find Kacie relaxing in nature; learning to play tennis with her wife; trail running with her lab shepherd rescue; painting in her art studio; engaging in type 2 fun; and discovering new ways to tire out her husky rescue pup.

Kacie is thankful to live and work in Mi’kma’ki (MEE-G-MAH-GEE), the ancestral territory of the Mi’kmaq (MEE-G-MAHK) people which was never surrendered and remains their territory today.
