Alyssandra J. Kent

I was born in Scarborough, Ontario, and have lived in several communities in the province, including Erin, Ontario where I attended high school at EDHSS. In 2012, I graduated from the University of Western Ontario with a Double Major in Political Science and Socio-Cultural Anthropology.

After graduation I worked for an Event Marketing firm that concentrated on fundraising for non-for-profit organizations and charities including D.A.R.E Canada and The Breast Cancer Society of Canada. In 2014, I decided to pursue a career in law, returned to school at Centennial College and obtained my Paralegal diploma. In February 2015, I became licensed with the Law Society of Ontario. In 2017, I began my studies with the University of London’s International Program, and will complete my LLB in 2020.

I began working at Nelson, Watson LLP in 2015 and am excited to offer paralegal services to the Guelph and Wellington County community with a focus on Landlord and Tenant, Human Rights and Small Claims Court matters, as well as other administrative tribunal procedures.  I believe it is important for people to have legal advice and representation at a cost they can manage.  I am also pleased to be a member of the civil litigation team at Nelson, Watson LLP and Wolfe, Smith & Forster LLP.

I am a member of the Ontario Paralegal Association and Guelph Women in Networking (GWIN).  I am also an active volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Guelph.
