Emily makes things happen. Intense and focused when necessary, she is also able to “go with the flow” when the seas of litigation get rocky. Given her natural curiosity and a solution-oriented mindset, it only makes sense that Emily is always on the lookout for new skills to add to her professional “toolbox”.
When it came to joining our finance team as Billing and A/R Coordinator, Emily’s background ticked all the boxes. Her previous office admin and legal support positions – and most recently, her work in the billing department of a busy litigation practice – made for a smooth transition to a role that requires the ability to work well with people, processes and numbers. Having also held positions in industries ranging from property management to design to construction to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Games, Emily has a unique and valuable perspective on the employment law issues facing our business clients.
Emily’s varied law firm experience includes work with non-profits like West Coast LEAF and the Community Legal Assistance Society, as well as boutique firms focusing on personal injury, aboriginal and constitutional law. But regardless of the context or the issue, Emily has learned that collaboration trumps conflict every time. Health-conscious and extremely active, like any mere mortal, she still falls prey to the occasional chocolate temptation. And if you’re considering a home makeover, Emily may just be able to hook you up with some former colleagues in the field.
