  • My Bio

    Artemis is an Iranian-Canadian who was raised in Vancouver. Her drive to advocate for and improve the lives of those around her motivated Artemis through her years in customer service, her degree in Psychology from Simon Fraser University and her decision to attend law school. Artemis moved to Victoria in 2017 to pursue her dream of becoming a lawyer. Before graduating law school in the spring of 2020, Artemis sought every opportunity to hone her skills in legal research and analysis.

    Artemis spent a term at The Law Centre in Victoria where she advocated for her clients in court as well as in mediations. Artemis fell in love with the culture and people of Victoria, so she knew that she wanted to continue building her career in this community after she obtained her law degree. She is excited to bring her passion for advocacy and the law, along with the skills she has developed throughout law school and her experiences at the Law Centre, to find effective solutions that help people achieve the best results for their situations.

  • What is your deepest obsession outside of work?

    Put simply, art! I have been obsessed with photography (occasionally to the dismay of my friends and family who have been my photography subjects for the last year). My next goal is to learn to use long exposure settings to create a trailing light effect at nighttime. I also love going into a flow state with painting and music. Last but not least, nothing brings me more joy than cooking, especially for my loved ones – an art that can be appreciated with multiple senses.

  • What is your favourite location to travel in BC?

    I really enjoy visiting my family and friends in Vancouver for a dose of energetic socialization.
    Also, my partner and I had such a memorable trip to Tofino a couple of years ago. I would love to revisit with him again soon.

  • What is your perfect meal?

    Such a limiting question, but I will give it a go:
    To start, a creamy cauliflower soup with truffle oil and lemon juice drizzled on top, served with parmesan crisps. A caccio e pepe that is made with a generous amount of parmigiana-reggiano and bacon, served with garlic butter prawns. No dessert… just some wine or beer to sip on while I nurse a food belly.
