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.
Johanna plays a central role in 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 team. She is also a key contact for our clients, her authenticity and straightforward manner instilling confidence that they have “come to the right place”.
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.
In her own words: Working for a law firm runs in the family. And find out what she doesn't like about bosses.
