During her nearly 20 years of litigation experience, Kim has seen it all, from builder’s liens, to drug prosecutions, custody disputes, flooded golf courses, gun registry references, and negligent building inspections. One notable highlight was representing a rural property owner facing various spurious allegations from a cult squatting on their land. Kim’s unique and varied practice has made her an exceptionally quick learner with an ability to spot issues that others miss. And, after spending close to a decade in a senior advisory position at the University of British Columbia (Okanagan), she has a firsthand understanding of what a client needs and wants from their legal counsel.
A true team player, Kim considers her clients to be part of that team – everyone works together to achieve the goals set by the client, whatever those happen to be. Kim’s takes a flexible and progressive approach to legal problems and particularly enjoys working with clients who are decisive and prepared to take risks to achieve their goals.
A lifelong soccer player, while never the fastest, biggest or strongest, Kim was always the most determined and dedicated. Having coached both her kids in the sport for several years, she is now happily retired, content to embarrass them from the sidelines with her enthusiastic cheering. Happiest when outdoors, Kim loves hiking, camping, snowshoeing, skiing, and beach time – just don’t ask her to ride a bike; no good ever came of that. Kim is a proud and active member of the Kelowna community, having been a volunteer member of the Board of Kelowna Community Resources for the past 14 years (three of those as President).
What Community Means to Kim
Kim believes that a strong community is the foundation for the success of the next generation and that strength can be founded in inclusive and diverse schools, sports, clubs, and neighbourhoods.
Kim is a lawyer with Kent Employment Law.
