Raquel embraces her job with a sense of humour that makes everyone smile, but don’t let her sunny demeanour fool you. She is also a tough taskmaster responsible for keeping our lawyers in line.
“From the moment I stepped foot in here as a temp, I felt more appreciated than I had in my entire career as an administrative assistant. At MT+Co. everyone’s opinion is not only appreciated, but encouraged.”
Raquel manages the corporate team’s paralegal work.
Raquel has an Associate of Science Degree (Dietetics) from Langara College and was on course to become a Nurse. Interestingly, after working with MT+Co. on a short term project, Raquel decided she was suited to the legal world and became part of our long term vision. She is currently finalizing her Paralegal studies. She remains passionate about helping people (like our clients), lawyers (like Drew Lawrenson and Brian Vick) and birds (like Gabriel, the pigeon she rescued from the entrance of our building).
Raquel is on the Community Council for the Burnaby/Vancouver SPCA and is a dedicated volunteer for the SPCA Certified Program.
An off-road adventurer, Raquel, her boyfriend and dogs head outdoors at any chance they get to go hiking, fishing and camping. Far from being a ‘glamper’, she prefers getting as far away from civilization as possible – as long as her camouflage has pink accents.
+I’m not a lawyer, I just help run the place.
