Daisy obtained her Juris Doctor from Osgoode Hall Law School in June of 2018. She has an undergraduate degree from the University of Toronto where she specialized in Philosophy and Gender Studies. Informed by social justice theory, Daisy made the decision to attend law school in hopes of bringing about positive social change.

During law school, Daisy was a Caseworker for Parkdale Community Legal Services' Immigration Division where she assisted clients with immigration files and helped to organize community advocacy efforts.

Additionally, she worked in conjunction with Dr. Hilary Evans Cameron on researching and preparing guidelines that addressed for the first time the use of social science evidence in refugee hearings for the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada.

Upon graduating, Daisy completed her articles with Patricia Wells Immigration Lawyers and began practice with AKM Law in 2019. She focuses her practice in complex Humanitarian and Compassionate applications (H&Cs) with histories of refused refugee claims, appeals and judicial reviews.

Daisy has also successfully represented clients at the Federal Court of Canada, litigating issues such as failed refugee appeals, H&Cs, Pre-Removal Risk Assessments. Notably, in the case of Onyekweli-Ugeh v. Canada (Minister of Immigration and Citizenship), the Federal Court further clarified that evading removal does not automatically result in the dismissal of matters before the court and that the relevant factors for consideration will vary based on the individual case.

Daisy is fluent in English and Mandarin and enjoys rock climbing in her spare time.
