Vanessa Singleton - LMA Vancouver Chapter Interview
We had a fantastic interview with Vanessa Singleton about her work, what she likes best about the legal marketing sector, how she makes the most of her LMA membership, etc. Vanessa is the acting marketing manager at Singleton Urquhart LLP.
How long have you been a member of the LMA? Almost four months.
How do members make the most of their membership? By attending LMA events and getting to know the other LMA members in their respective chapter.
What do you like most about legal marketing? The competition and possibility. Each campaign presents an opportunity to create a bigger and better image for the company you work for.
What do you enjoy most about your role at your firm? I love designing ads and planning firm events. We have four mid to large size events coming up in April. This will be an exceptionally busy month for me, but the touch and go keeps me on the edge of my seat, which is where I like to be. Designing an ad in between events gives me the opportunity to feed my inner artist, and it’s just really a lot of fun to create, in my opinion, little works of art.
Your goals for 2015? Read and dance more often.
What are you currently reading? "Coco Chanel: The Legend and the Life” by Justine Picarde.
What is your favorite lunch spot? Right now I could really go for some Ramen at Gyoza Bar + Ramen on Hastings St.
One piece of advice for fellow legal marketers? Take more risks. You’ll never know if you don’t try.
