Francesca completed her undergraduate studies in Criminology and Criminal Justice at Carleton University in 2014. After twenty-four winters in the Nation’s Capital, Francesca decided to migrate to the southernmost point of Canada to attend law school at the University of Windsor. During her time in law school, Francesca was part of several organizations including Pro Bono Students Canada, Community Legal Aid, Youth Outreach as well as a volunteer at the Downtown Mission. During her time as a group leader at Community Legal Aid, Francesca represented low-income individuals at the Ontario Court of Justice, the Provincial Offences Court, the Small Claims Court and the Landlord and Tenant Board.
Upon graduating from law school in 2018, Francesca completed her articles at a nationally renowned litigation firm in Windsor. Francesca then began working as an associate, gaining valuable experience while practicing in family law and commercial litigation.
Francesca is committed to the core values of hard work, humility, and giving back to the community. In 2019, Francesca founded “Sacks for Santa”, a charity that provides homeless youth in Essex County with backpacks filled with necessities. Francesca is also a lawyer with the Reclaim Project, a project of Spark Law and the University of Windsor that provides pro bono legal services to victims of technology-facilitated violence.
Francesca has always taken an interest in studying languages, and can assist in English, French, Italian, Spanish and basic Portuguese.
In her spare time, Francesca can be found training for her next marathon, playing fetch with her dog Zane, creating new recipes for her cookbook, and devising her plan to change the world.
