Engaged and engaging workplaces are such an important contributing factor to business success, as well as to our happiness and our sense of self, and I am rewarded by the privilege of seeing people grow, contribute successfully, and find meaning in their work.
Since completing a Master of Arts degree at the University of Victoria and a certificate in non-profit management, my employment journey has presented a wide array of experiences, challenges, and opportunities working with a diverse range of people in union and non-union, private, non-profit and education environments.
After a career spanning 30 years in senior management and human resources roles, I now enjoy applying my expertise and experience to a broad range of organizations and industries. I dig into the challenges that teams and managers face at work, providing strategic HR in such areas as recruitment and retention, performance management and employee development, total compensation organizational structure, talent management, succession planning and more. I love seeing positive outcomes from facilitating difficult conversations that resolve conflict, achieve shared understanding of goals and objectives and promote diversity, inclusion, and great performance!
When not working, I am often out walking my dog with other two and four-legged friends, relaxing and connecting with nature along the harbours and beaches of Sidney-by-the-Sea, or contributing to the community through volunteer work.
