In addition to her Juris Doctor degree from the University of Calgary, Jeneba holds a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Political Science and French from Acadia University, and a Masters in Conflict Studies from the University of Ottawa. While in Ottawa, Jeneba trained with the Canadian Institute for Conflict Resolution.
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 with civil matters in Provincial Court.
Before 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. These experiences helped shape her passion for facilitating access to justice and led to her decision to pursue a legal career.
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. She then spent some time with a boutique law firm here in Calgary, where she focused primarily on employment litigation. Jeneba is passionate about client-centered practice and making the law accessible.
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.
