Melanie Starchuk
Corporate Paralegal (she/her)

While studying for my major in international relations at UBC Okanagan, I became interested in how companies control and impact our environment. During my Paralegal Diploma at Capilano University, I began to question how law can provide solutions to inequitable institutions created by colonialism.

As the corporate paralegal, I work closely with my teammates to provide timely and reliable service. My main responsibilities are to maintain the corporate records, and to assist with property and financing transactions. I am fortunate and happy to be learning an ever-evolving area of law and I am grateful to be part of such a passionate and experienced group.

On the weekends, I can be found trail running in the beautiful mountains, on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish people, with my family and my Australian Shepherd named Roo.
