I initially did not pursue a career in Human Resources after obtaining my Associates Degree in Business Management from BCIT, but after working at a recruitment agency in Vancouver, I soon realized HR was the path for me. I loved getting to know employees, finding out why they chose their field and learning their story. Recognizing recruitment is just one aspect of HR, I continued my studies at BCIT and completed the Human Resources Management certificate part-time while working full time.
Since then, I have enjoyed working for an accounting firm and manufacturing company while continuing to learn and develop as an HR professional. As an Engagement Associate at Engaged HR, one of the clients I support is in the non-profit industry who provides housing for Indigenous individuals and families all across BC. I am proud to provide HR-related support as they navigate a team that spans across the province and continues to grow.
With a CPHR designation and over 10 years of experience in the HR field, I am passionate about supporting employees in their own development. I truly enjoy supporting organizations with a variety of functions that include recruitment, professional development, benefits, performance management, compensation, and engagement.
Outside of work, my husband and I stay very busy trying to keep up with our two children at the hockey rink, swimming pool and soccer field! I have a passion for cooking and trying out new recipes, hiking and watching funny movies.
