Jeneba practices in Civil Litigation with a particular focus on Employment Litigation and Human Rights. After completing her articles with Alberta Justice & Solicitor General, Jeneba worked as a Crown Prosecutor where she gained a wealth of experience in advocacy and negotiation. Before joining West Legal, Jeneba spent some time at a small boutique law firm in Calgary where she focused mainly on employee-side litigation.
Jeneba holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and French from Acadia University, a Masters of Conflict Resolution from the University of Ottawa and a Juris Doctor from the University of Calgary. During the completion of her Masters, Jeneba trained with the Canadian Institute for Conflict Resolution in Ottawa. During Law School, Jeneba was a volunteer with Student Legal Assistance, Canadian Lawyers Abroad and Pro-Bono Students Canada. She also spent time volunteering with Pro-Bono Law Alberta on their Civil Claims Duty Counsel Project, which provides free legal advice to self-represented litigants on Provincial Court civil matters.
Prior to embarking on her legal career, Jeneba completed an internship with a non-profit organization in Ghana, where she worked on access to justice issues facing West-African youth. She also worked as a Flood Recovery Caseworker for the Canadian Red Cross and the Bowness Community Association, where she actively helped Calgarians recover from the 2013 Floods.
In her spare time, Jeneba enjoys riding horses, spending time in the mountains, and travelling the world. Her goal is to visit all seven wonders of the world in her lifetime, which she kicked off in April 2019 by visiting the ancient city of Petra in Jordan.
