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. During my time in university I participated in Habitat for Humanity and spent a summer planting trees in Manitoba.

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 completed the Paralegal licensing exam and became licensed with the Law Society of Upper Canada.

I began working at Nelson, Watson LLP as a litigation law clerk. I am excited to expand my career by offering 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.  In my free time I love to bake and create custom cakes for friends and family. I also enjoy going to the gym, reading and watching television and movies with my husband.
