1. What is your favorite thing about coming to work every morning?

The People. If I’m going to spend a good chunk of my time at an office, I want to make sure my colleagues don’t just work hard, but have great stories to share, and are people I can make new stories with. As Partner Manager, I also get to engage with so many great and intelligent people from other companies, learning about different verticals and industries that touch data governance.

The Constant Learning. Data privacy, transparency, and record keeping are on more and more minds now. new regulations and rules are changing the landscape rapidly. It’s exciting to be at the forefront of technology that bridges data and policy.

2. What was your first job?  

Does lemonade stand count? Otherwise delivering flyers around the neighbourhood as a kid.

3. If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?

An elephant. Ever read Babar? He was an elephant that had some epic adventures. He travelled around the world on a hot air balloon.

4. What passions do you pursue outside of office hours?

I love exploring. Especially to places that are changing quickly. There’s so many places to see in the world and different cultures to learn from, and so little time to experience it all. Closer to home, I like exploring our local outdoors by hiking, biking, and paddling. There’s a ton of places to explore within just a few hours drive as well.

5. Vanilla or chocolate?

Cookies and Cream. Who says you can’t get the best of both worlds!

The Best Way to Place Social Media Data on Litigation Hold

With so many people active on social media these days, it’s hardly surprising that posts and comments on platforms like Facebook and Twitter often feature prominently during legal matters. This means that legal professionals have an obligation to protect relevant social media data from spoliation, but the challenges that come with these modern information sources extend far beyond willful destruction of evidence.

Social Media Evidence Spoliation and Preservation

No case better illustrates the risks of social media spoliation than Lester v. Allied Concrete Company. The plaintiff had lost his wife in a tragic vehicle accident and was suing for wrongful death. Unfortunately, some Facebook photos came to light that his lawyer was afraid would prejudice the case, and he consequently told his client to delete them. “We do not want blow ups of other pics at trial,” an email from the law firm read, “so please, please clean up your Facebook and MySpace!”
