Johanna Strimas

Legal Assistant (Kelowna)
Johanna Strimas

With a work history that includes nearly a decade of experience in the banking industry and previous legal support roles at two leading British Columbia law firms, Johanna brings a broad skill set to her role as Legal Assistant for Connect’s Kelowna office. Her legal experience is extensive and varied as she has worked with busy litigators in a number of different practice areas including general litigation, personal injury and family law.

She plays a key role for our Kelowna practice, with a job description that includes office management, administrative and legal support responsibilities. Without exaggeration, she is the operational linchpin for our Okanagan practice. She is also the face of the firm.  In her front-of-house role, Johanna’s warmth, authenticity and easy-going manner put our clients instantly at ease, letting them know they will be well-taken care of.

Having moved to Kelowna in 1998, Johanna is now considered an “old-timer” in the city. She is a passionate Okanagan, enjoying a “ski to sea” existence with her family during her leisure time – winters are spent on the mountain and summers by the lake. The proud mom to two brilliant boys and her “dogaughter” Eva, Johanna loves nothing more than time spent with them exploring her community and the Valley, on foot or by bike.
