"I am empathetic and responsive to the needs of my staff because I understand and have had the responsibility of working in those roles throughout my career.
At HHBG, I have been able to work in my dream job with people I respect, admire and appreciate. My responsibilities include the direction of staff and administration. I have worked in this senior position with the firm for over nine years, and I bring with me over twenty-five years of legal experience. As a business manager, I am responsible for the direction of all operations of the firm and help drive the success of the business. I am also the primary initial point of contact that potential new clients have with our firm.
In my career, I have worked for multiple law firms. I bring to HHBG a wealth of knowledge as a former paralegal and legal administrative assistant, as well as invaluable experience in the management of a law firm. I have obtained both my Legal Administrative Assistant and Paralegal Certificates from Capilano University. In 2014, I also earned certificates in Human Resource Management and Business Management from BCIT, graduating both programs with distinction. I am a long time member of the British Columbia Legal Management Association (BCLMA) and have recently been voted in as a Director of their Board to serve as their Business Partner Liaison. Prior to this appointment, I served two terms as Chair of their Small Firms Subsection.
Outside the firm, I have served several terms as a member of the Quality of Life Improvement Program in the Ismaili Community. I am also active in the World Partnership Walk annual fundraising activities for alleviating global poverty. In my spare time, I love to Zumba, travel, read and spend time with my husband exploring the beauty of British Columbia and the world.
