As a legal assistant at Woodward and Company, Geneva is committed to contributing to Canada’s decolonial process and brings her strong organizational skills, adaptability, and confidence to her work with great success.

She then moved to Nanaimo and attended school in Duncan before moving to Ottawa to complete her undergraduate degree in law, which set the foundation for her interest in decolonization and First Nations advocacy. Between graduation and joining Woodward and Company, Geneva worked as a paralegal in personal injury and estate litigation which deepened her interest in law and provided her with an opportunity to hone her legal skillset.
