Leah Schurian

Leah was born and raised in Kelowna.  Her childhood was spent exploring Joe Rich around her family’s rural home.  She completed an undergraduate degree at UBC (Okanagan Campus) in International Relations before continuing on to law school.  She completed her Juris Doctor at the University of Alberta in 2013 and was called to the British Columbia Bar in 2014.  She practiced at a leading regional firm and another small Kelowna firm before setting out on her own as a sole practitioner.  Leah divides her time between her small practice and caring for her two young children and two rescued dogs.  She has been a long-time governance volunteer with the BC SPCA.  She has previously served on the board of directors for a local theatre production society.  She currently serves as the President (and is a founding member) of the Friends of Woodhaven Nature Conservancy Society.  She also volunteers for the RDCO Environmental Advisory Commission.  Leah is thrilled to have the opportunity to combine her education with her passion for conservation and restoration.
