Born and raised in Surrey BC, Avneet believes in using all of the tools at her disposal to contribute to grassroots community development. She sees the Everyone Legal Clinic as an ideal platform for putting her legal education and service ethic to work in Prince George, with the support of like-minded colleagues and mentors.

Avneet is driven by her desire to serve the communities that supported her personal and professional development from Day One. She takes inspiration from her immigrant parents, who led by example and taught her how impactful it can be to help fellow members of marginalized groups navigate interactions with government systems.

With the support of her family, friends and wider community, Avneet earned her BA (Honours) in history at UBC, and went on to earn her JD at the University of California, Davis School of Law.

In her free time, she can be found at a powerlifting gym, reading historical fiction, or baking the latest fancy dessert that caught her eye online.
