Sara Michelle Cortez Qureshi
Administrative Assistant

(she/her/hers)

Growing up on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations, as well as having the opportunity to learn from Indigenous mentors since childhood has driven me to pursue a career in service to Indigenous Peoples.

While pursuing a degree in political science and law at the University of British Columbia, I was lucky to learn from leaders and advocates in both fields. I focused on issues relating to critical mixed race studies, as well as Indigenous law as it relates to the decolonization of legal systems in settler states. I am grateful for the opportunity to continue to learn and apply my knowledge at First Peoples Law LLP.

Outside of work, I love to garden (when the weather allows), read, paint, and spend time outdoors with my dogs.
