Natasha is an associate with Boudreau Law. She attended law school at the University of Ottawa and clerked with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in Thunder Bay for her articles. While at the court, she assisted the judges in Kenora, Thunder Bay, Sault Ste. Marie (and the surrounding communities) with research, writing, and editing on a variety of legal topics. She was called to the Ontario bar in June 2016 and, upon returning to her hometown of Winnipeg, to the Manitoba bar in October 2016. She has considerable experience in the policy and practice of child protection law, and is keenly interested in pursuing a specialization in Indigenous law.

In her life before law, Natasha completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Winnipeg, where she majored in politics and international development. This experience led her to volunteer at both a women’s aid organization and an environmental protection organization in Lviv, Ukraine. After finishing her undergrad, Natasha interned for one year at the Manitoba Legislative Assembly with the government caucus, and then began her Masters of Natural Resources Management at the University of Manitoba. Her fieldwork took her to Kenora, where she worked with Indigenous women to produce her thesis, “Keepers of the Water: Exploring Anishinaabe and Métis Women’s Knowledge of Water and Participation in Water Governance in Kenora, Ontario”.

Natasha seeks to draw upon all of her educational and practical experiences on her path as a lawyer.
