Prior to law, he was a tutor and teaching assistant for Dr. Frank Tough and Dorothy Thunder at the University of Alberta, with whom he worked in research methodologies and Cree language respectively. He also worked as a gardener and soft landscaper during his undergraduate summers. After which, Isaac served in point-of-contact roles in a youth care agency and K-12 public school. From his prior experiences, especially through Indigenous ceremonies and his time at Parkdale Community Legal Services, Isaac has developed a deep appreciation of the preeminence of community in legal service.
