Oana Grant

Oana was born in Romania, in the gorgeous mountains of Transylvania. She obtained her first law degree (civil law) there, before coming to Victoria, Canada, in 2007. Once in Canada, she obtained her second law degree (common law) from the University of Victoria and she has been practicing law as an associate at the law firm of Dinning Hunter Jackson Law since 2010. Her practice focuses on civil litigation (personal injury) and personal and estate planning. Oana is married and her husband Peter and herself have a son, Brady. Oana came in contact with the ALS Society when her brother in law, Jimmy Grant, was diagnosed with ALS and subsequently passed away in 2011. Since the diagnosis, Oana has fundraised money for ALS, alongside her husband, who is a recipient of the Award for Exceptional Fundraising by a volunteer, and their Lyall Street Service Station, as part of their Show’n’Shine event, each June. Also, since 2018, Oana has organized the Flower Day event in Victoria, which also continues to raise funds and awareness for ALS. Since January 2019, Oana is excited to offer her support to the society in her capacity of President of the Victoria Chapter of the ALS Society of BC.
