An interesting tidbit

Her love to travel. Elisabeth’s most adventurous trips included a 10-mile hike through Hawaii’s uncut forests and old lava fields to poke hot lava with a stick. She also walked on the Columbia Icefield and drank fresh water from the Athabasca Glacier in Jasper National Park. Fire and Ice!


Raised in Buffalo, NY, Elisabeth attended school in Toronto and never left. A keen interest in the field of law and HR drew her to law firms. With 23 years at the management level, working in law firms has become her true calling. She is thrilled to be a part of Bernardi Human Resource Law LLP, a firm that is truly engaged in encouraging each member of its team to work to achieve something bigger than they could on their own.
