She now provides and coordinates support for all the professionals on our team.

Davina Nemeth

Davina grew up in Vancouver but a desire to escape the city lead her to Prince George where she attended the University of Northern British Columbia and obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Studies. After the completion of her studies, she spent several years working for the city of Prince George’s Police Support Services as a front end receptionist assisting clients as well as in the R.C.M.P. records department.

In another search for greener pastures, she moved to the Comox Valley where she worked for the Comox Valley Regional District as a casual administrative assistant to the many varied departments within the district. After the birth of her two children she joined forces with J.B. Nemeth Law as Business Manager, where she handles the firm’s day to day operations including, bookkeeping, payroll administration, marketing, and human resources.

In her leisure time Davina enjoys exploring the beautiful forests and beaches of the Comox Valley with her two children and husband Jason.
