Stacey Poole
Administrator

I moved from the sunny beaches of the Gold Coast, Australia to British Columbia in 2013 and began working at First Peoples Law. Immediately I knew that this was a passionate group of people and I appreciated the less traditional structure of the firm that encouraged creativity and a new way of doing things. To learn and grow with the firm continues to be a great experience and I’m glad to offer administrative support to the lawyers in their meaningful and important work.

Outside of the office, you will find me mountain biking, hiking, trail running or paddle boarding. I serve on the Board of Directors for the Tri-Cities Off Road Cycling Association, we advocate for and maintain our local trail network to ensure the trails are environmentally sustainable, safe and accessible for recreation. Working with local land managers, First Nations, fish hatcheries and other user groups has taught me a lot about the coastal rain forest, biodiversity and the climate unique to the Pacific North West - I even love the rain! (although that took some getting used to). I also lead beginner mountain bike rides, coach at an elementary school bike club, volunteer and participate in a number of adventure and mountain bike race events.
