Justine grew up on a 100-acre farm in nearby Elgin County. Her family eventually moved to Montreal, Quebec and then she chose to move to Ottawa, Ontario to obtain her Bachelors from the University of Ottawa. After graduating and working several years for Citizenship and Immigration Canada, Industry Canada and Health Canada, she decided she wanted to be more effective in helping people and decided to go to law school at the University of Leicester in England.
