Emma MacKechnie

Executive Legal Assistant


Emma was born in Maryland, USA and raised in Ottawa, ON.

She is fully bilingual and recently graduated with top Honours from the University of St-Fancis Xavier in Nova Scotia. Emma studied Forensic Psychology and completed an undergraduate Honours Thesis in Neuropsychology, where she explored the links between vision and multiple sclerosis.

She was a recipient of multiple awards and scholarships throughout her undergraduate degree, including scholarships for academic achievement, and held a place on the Dean’s List in 2019 and from 2021 until her graduation. She also received an award to help fund her research which examined mental health and corrections.

She is interested in both law and neuropsychology, which is why she is thrilled to have the opportunity to learn more from the diverse team at David | Sauvé.


Emma is ambidextrous and after originally learning to write with her left hand, she taught herself to write with her right hand!
