Kaytlyn Steele

What kind of work do you do at Hemminger Law Group Westshore?

Family Law.

If there was one lesson you learned as a young person that you would like to pass on to others, what would that be?

Who you are speaks so loudly, no one can hear what you're saying  - my trainer said this to me once and he told me his coach said it to him.

What is your home town?

I was born in Cuilapa, Santa Rosa, Guatemala and raised in Victoria.

What do you love most about Langford and the Westshore?

I love that I live so close to work and I enjoy checking out the many walking trails around the Westshore.

Where are your top 3 favorite places and why?

1. Guatemala – This place is very special to me because I was adopted from here and I’ve been back several times to meet my biological family.

2. Belize -  I travelled to both Belize and Guatemala with my best friend and it was such an amazing trip. I really enjoyed snorkelling with nurse sharks and sting rays and watching the sun rise, and sun set on the top of the ruins in Tikal.

3. Shawnigan Lake - my family has a cabin at Shawnigan lake, my siblings and I have spent almost every summer at the lake.

Outside of the legal profession, what is your passion?

Fitness has been a passion of mine over the last several years. I enjoy training with my personal trainer and also trying to find new hiking trials around my house with my partner.

How do you deliver your more as a part of the  more than your ordinary law firm team?

I like that as an assistant we work a lot closer with clients, and I like helping people through what might be a very trying time in their life.
