Jamesy received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, Cum Laude (2006) from York University and both her Law degree (2012) and Master of Laws degree (2017) from the University of Saskatchewan. Jamesy’s research during her LLM focused on Indigenous child welfare in Saskatchewan. Jamesy has practiced child protection law as both Crown Counsel and defence counsel. Jamesy’s practice focuses primarily on child protection matters and Indigenous Governance in relation to child protection. Jamesy is passionate about policy development and governance surrounding child protection for Indigenous communities and organizations. As well, Jamesy regularly accepts appointments to represent children and youth through the Counsel for Children and Youth Office, and she is devoted to furthering the best interests of children and families facing systemic barriers in the community.
Jamesy is also a recognized parenting coordinator in Saskatchewan. Parenting coordination is a child-focused, out-of-court dispute resolution process for separated families. Parenting coordinators assist parents with interpreting or understanding their court order, family arbitration award or separation agreement. If parents cannot come to an agreement on something, parenting coordinators can make a binding decision for them.
