From the day I started my degree I have loved the people side of HR. I love making connections with people, understanding what each person does and how they fit into the big picture and helping people be the best at what they do through training, coaching and shared experience. I completed my Human Resources Degree in 2010 through Camosun College and received my CPHR Designation in the same year. I have been an HR professional for the past 12 years working in a variety of industries.
I started out in Training and Development for a large retail organization, creating, implementing and facilitating training and am still very passionate about training and facilitation. I spent the next five years of my career working in Organizational Development in the Oil and Gas Industry focusing on career development for employees, organizational wellness and culture, succession planning and other project based work. Following Oil and Gas I had the pleasure of working with Cowichan Tribes supporting their HR Services, mainly in Recruitment and I have most recently worked in an HR specialist capacity for a Northern Utility supporting the business in all areas of HR; after 6 years of being away from my extended family I am happy to move my own family back to Vancouver Island and join Engaged HR where I can support your business as a People and Culture Partner.
