Olivia Valks – President
Veronika Crawford – Vice President
My name is Veronika Crawford, and I am excited to be your vice president of the Legal Assistant Society for the 2022/2023 school year.
I decided to enroll in the SAIT Legal Assistant Program after many years of watching crime and law shows; I decided that it seemed like law was something I wanted to be involved in. I look forward to having a career I am passionate about and enjoy. My favourite class I have taken so far is Real Estate Law I.
In my spare time I enjoy bingeing the latest Netflix series and hanging out with friends.
Sarah Davis – Treasurer
Amaka Elezie – Secretary
Hello, my name is Amaka Elezie! I am a second year legal assistant student and the secretary of the Legal Assistant Society for the 2022/2023 academic year.
Some of my hobbies are reading, swimming, baking, and singing. I have a special love and passion for the legal field, which is why I fell in love with this program and have been in love ever since. The goal is to become a lawyer someday soon; as soon as I jump the hurdle that is the LSAT.
I look forward to seeing your wonderful faces on campus, and I hope we all have an amazing year.
Rheagan Quigg – Event Planner
Hi! I’m Rheagan Quigg, and I am a second year, legal assistant student. I am the club even coordinator for the 2022/2023 school year.
I have always had an affinity for planning events even if it is just a dinner out or a whole New Year’s bash; I am a very social person.
I also love reading and am working on my debut novel whenever I get a chance. I love anything Disney and fashion-related. I am almost always dressed up and coordinated. I love to cook, bake, and bartend. Basically, anything that involves a recipe and ingredients of any sort. I also love going to concerts, listening to music, and traveling.
I am looking forward to coordinating some awesome events. Don’t hesitate to say hello to me in the hallways!
Alyssa Gibson – Volunteer Coordinator
My name is Alyssa Gibson, and I am excited to be a part of the Legal Assistant Society as the volunteer coordinator for the 2022/2023 school year.
I graduated from the University of Calgary in 2021, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy. I was originally planning on continuing my philosophy education with a masters and doctoral; however, in my second last year I took a course that specialized in philosophy logic in law. Since then, I have been inspired to pursue a career in law. I am unsure about the exact law career I want, so I decided to enroll in the Legal Assistant Program to dip my toes into the world of law.
I currently work at a law firm and have been inspired to take the LSAT and further use my philosophy degree, but as of right now the books look really pretty on my shelf… so who knows.
In my free time I enjoy cooking, working on my podcast, and skateboarding.
Scott Steneker – Marketing Team
Hello! My name is Scott Steneker, and I am one half of the marketing team of the Legal Assistant Society for the 2022/2023 academic year.
I ended up in the SAIT Legal Assistant Program because I knew I wanted a career in law, but I didn’t know what that might actually look like. Before heading down the long academic and career road of becoming a lawyer, I thought it would be nice to get a little taste of the legal world to see if it truly is the place for me.
Besides my interest in law, I compose music for films and series as my day job, I play in a couple bands, and I love reading, yoga, and video games. Hope to see you around campus!
Christa Hylton – Marketing Team
Hi! My name is Christa Hylton. I will be the other half of the marketing team for the 2022/2023 academic year.
I was originally working towards a degree in social work with the intention to working in mental health policy, but after learning about this program from both legal assistants and lawyers in my life, I knew that a career that blended client-facing advocacy with law and policy was the path for me. I am so glad I made the decision to enroll in SAIT’s Legal Assistant Program and I hope you are too!
In my free time I enjoy practicing yoga, playing cozy video games, and hanging with my rabbit. PS. If you ever need a bunny pic to make your day better, message me!
