Choosing a career path was a difficult choice for me. My two big passions are helping people and expressing myself creatively. I came very close to moving to Vancouver to become a Special Effects Make-up Artist. In the end, I chose to be a Legal Assistant because I wanted to be of service to people in a practical and tangible way.
I have been working at Poole Lawyers since the day I started my practicum and was delighted to join the firm full-time upon its completion.
The work we do is unique in that our focus is on legal malpractice, a niche area of work most lawyers are hesitant to take on; because of this we are presented with the opportunity to help our clients by attempting to go above and beyond to rebuild the trust they may have lost in the legal system. Everyone works to build a strong relationship with the client, keep them updated and to communicate well with them.
I am naturally a behind-the-scenes person who loves the responsibility of handling the larger projects and handling the details such as proofreading documents, ensuring that information is correct, files are organized, and that any job is done well and completed on time.
I am so pleased to be working with a team of kind-hearted, genuine and hardworking people dedicated to serving their clients. It is an extra bonus that I can indulge my creative side with the wonderful art collection housed by the firm.
In my off hours I enjoy watching movies with my husband, learning languages, reading and spending time with my family and cats.
