YLaw was the one legislation agency from BC to make this nationwide listing, and the one female-lead legislation agency within the nation to obtain this award.
To obtain this award throughout a pandemic and whereas elevating an toddler makes it that rather more particular for me.
This award is the product of years of sleepless nights and relentless days spent on believing in a single dream: that I can change the best way legislation corporations are run. I can deliver well being and happiness to our legislation agency tradition. I can deal with our shoppers like they’re my household. I can deliver well being to a notoriously unhealthy occupation. And I don’t must be ashamed of it.

My dream got here via this 12 months after I acquired an e-mail from the extremely prestigious Globe and Mail, notifying me that YLaw has gained this rating. I used to be additionally invited to an interview and photoshoot. After the preliminary shock, I discovered the braveness to answer and naturally settle for the invitation.
To my shock, The Globe and Mail had picked my firm and a handful of others from the 400 listing to profile. This was simply an icing on an already scrumptious cake that I didn’t count on to obtain.
When the article got here out and I noticed my photos and write up, the final 10 years of my life flashed earlier than my eyes. My palms began shaking and I chocked up crying.
I proudly shared the article with the agency, household and associates, however earlier than anything, I knew and nonetheless know:
I might be completely nothing with out the love and help of this unimaginable group of individuals I work with, my household who has stood by me via thick and skinny, and my child who has made me preserve sane throughout this pandemic.
