Meet BWB&O’s Highlight of the Month!

Meet Elizabeth! Elizabeth was born in Battersea, London and split her time living between both Ghana, West Africa and London, England. Her father went to law school in London and after law school became a judge in Tanzania and Ghana. She was introduced to the legal industry early because her father was passionate about law and justice, and she saw first hand her father’s pride in wearing his wig and gown to court.

When Elizabeth moved to the U.S. she got her paralegal certificate and started her first job at a criminal and family law firm in Alexandria, Virginia. When she moved to California, she worked for her second firm for 15 years before they closed their doors. She has been with Bremer Whyte for two years and considers our firm her home because of the positive environment, diversity, team atmosphere, and overall integrity the firm provides.

Outside of work, Elizabeth spends time with her extended family and three kids. She has encouraged them to shoot for the stars make a positive impact.

Q: Who motivates you and why?

A: My dad, my kids, my family, and The Lord. They are the reason I strive to be the best version of myself and to always work to improve and be better.

Q: Tell us about a success story you are proud of?

A: I am most proud of my kids and the paths they’ve taken to reach success. One example is when my middle daughter told me she wasn’t ready for university and started at a community college. At first, I was a little disappointed because I thought she could do better. It turned out that this was the right move for her. She eventually transferred to UC Santa Barbara where she majored in Psychology and went on to get her Master’s in Industrial Organizational Psychology. I am proud of all three kids for stepping outside of their comfort zone to achieve their dreams.

Q: What advice would you give someone who is about to start their career or educational journey?

A: My advice is to set a goal for yourself and map out the steps to get there. Life will happen, and you will have to alter your path, but don’t lose sight of your goal. Do not give up just because you hit a road block. With the right attitude and ability to pivot, you will eventually be able to accomplish what you want.

Q: Do you have any hobbies or creative outlets? Tell us about them.

A: I love to read (I always have my kindle on me), go to the movies, dance, travel, and meet new people! I don’t love to cook, but I’ve been told I am very good at cooking.

A special thank you to Elizabeth for sharing her experiences!
