Korrei Kruger is a legal assistant in the Coeur d’Alene office. She’s passionate about helping others and seeing the impact her organization and assistance has on others’ lives. Her love of learning and appetite for trying new things makes her a valuable asset to the firm.
Korrei is never without her laptop and cell phone, but she’s also a big fan of her “Mary Poppins bag” because you never know just what an intrepid assistant may need in a fast-paced business law firm.
Korrei draws inspiration from those known for taking action, including this quote from basketball legend Michael Jordan: “Some people want it to happen, some wish it to happen, others make it happen.”
Korrei loves living in the Northwest and spending time in the wilderness. Her dream is to one day backpack the Appalachian or Pacific Crest Trail.
Her philosophy is that in order to serve the nation or the world, a person should start by first serving their own community, starting with family and friends.
“To be able to serve your family and friends, you must be able to serve yourself and know your heart is true. Smith + Malek invests in these connections and services,” she says.
