Wendy started her legal career as a legal secretary (yes, a “secretary”. That goes to show how old she is!) working for a short time in the areas of criminal and family law. She found that wasn’t a great fit for her and decided she would look for a job in a different area of law and if that didn’t work out, she would go back to school and complete her degree in Criminology. She interviewed at Hobbs & Leigh and the rest is history! She has now worked with Digby both at Hobbs & Leigh and Digby Leigh & Company for the majority of her career and has risen from being a junior legal secretary to office manager of our entire operation. Wendy brings a unique perspective to the role of Office Manager having worked as a legal secretary and then paralegal for over 10 years before moving into a leadership position.
Wendy commutes from Maple Ridge to the office in Edgemont Village, but the challenge of getting to do something different every day, combined with the determination to constantly improve and the excitement of doing something different than what everyone else is doing, plus the added bonus of getting to work with an amazing group of people makes the long commute worthwhile.
Outside of work, Wendy loves nothing more than cheering from the sidelines at her children’s sports activities and spending time with family and friends at their cabin in beautiful Tulameen, BC.
