    Nikki Osachoff - Legal Assistant to Mr. Van Wyk

    Nikki joined the MZA team in September 2014 as the office Receptionist but quickly advanced to work with Mr. John Zimmer, Q.C. as his Legal Assistant in January 2015. Upon Mr. Zimmer’s decision to retire in May 2016, she began working with Mr. Kobus Van Wyk while continuing to work with Mr. Zimmer. After graduating high school, Nikki decided on a change of scenery, which led her to reside in Victoria for a time. Nevertheless, she ended back in her home town of Cranbrook. Nikki enjoys the scenery as well as the summer and winter activities available in and around the Kootenay area.
