Daughter to immigrant parents from Latin America, Natalie Izaguirre-Canales was born in Ottawa and raised in Guelph. Natalie grew up with multiple family members who are human right activist. Their work within the political field inspired Natalie to pursue law at a young age.
She attended most of her education locally in Guelph and decided to stay close for her undergrad by choosing Wilfrid Laurier University to study Political Science, Global Studies, and Legal Studies.
She decided to continue her education and pursue her passion for law by becoming a paralegal. Throughout her time at triOS College Natalie has been exposed to many areas of Substantive law. Some of her interests include: immigration and refugee, Human rights, Provincial offences, small claims court, and landlord-tenant board.
Natalie spends her time volunteering for her community or can be found playing individual or team recreational sports throughout Centre Wellington. She loves reading, exploring new trails in the surrounding area, teaching her dog (miniature schnauzer) Max new tricks, or coaching youth sports teams.
Her life mission is to inspire and uplift young girls and women to get involved in politics or law.
Leslie Martin was born and raised here in Guelph Ontario.
Leslie has always been passionate about helping others while being an advocate for friends, family, and her community. She then took that passion and graduated from Westervelt College in Kitchener, ON for Developmental Support worker in 2020. After personal and work experience, she took the leap to pursue the field of Law by becoming a Paralegal in 2021, further expanding her ability to advocate for the individuals she supports in ways she was not able to before.
During Leslie’s studies at triOS in the Paralegal program, she has discovered a true interest in the fields of Employment Law, Landlord and Tenant Board, the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, Provincial Offences and Criminal Law.
Leslie is part of the outreach program and fundraiser committee at Shelldale Family Gateway here in Guelph, where she spends her free time volunteering with the committee creating innovative ways to raise money to support all the family and youth programs that are provided at the community centre. She also spends her weekends as a Direct Support Professional at Community Living Guelph Wellington in Erin ON.
During Leslie’s downtime she enjoys spending time with her significant other and daughter, either baking, having movie marathons or painting. She also enjoys spending time with her parents and extended family and friends any chance she can. The Martin home loves their animals too, as Leslie has 3 cats and a dog who follow her around from room to room.
Leslie’s hope and mission in life is to always enhance the lives of those she supports and advocates for, and to inspire those of our community that anything is possible - despite what life may throw at you.
