Ebelia Rea is a paralegal at Smith + Malek’s Boise office, where she focuses on supporting our attorneys and clients in business and estate planning. Ebelia has always had a passion for helping people, and noticing that people need help navigating the complexities of law prompted her to choose a career in the legal field. She counts helping people navigate the legal system among her biggest career accomplishments. Her goal is to go to law school to further this work. Ebelia chose Smith + Malek because of the opportunity for growth and the sense of supportive community within the team.
Outside of work, Ebelia loves to spend time outside with her family hiking, riding bikes, and enjoying other outdoor activities. During the colder seasons, she enjoys reading books or playing games with her family.
