|My Experience||“After completing an undergraduate degree in 2011, I began working at a start-up import company in Toronto. My primary role was to manage the supply chain. However, as the only full-time employee, I was working on quality control one day, procurement the next, writing content for the website the next, and so on. Every day was different. I worked on million-dollar accounts in North America, travelled to Central and South America, and certified the company with a coveted U.S. Customs and Border Protection program. It was an extremely rewarding experience to be part of a flourishing company.|
Eventually, I decided to go back to school to revisit a childhood dream of a career in healthcare. In 2014, I attended the University of Toronto for a professional Master’s degree. I gained valuable experience in areas of women’s mental health, inpatient burn and trauma care, alternative communication, hospital administration, and research. Although I learned a lot, I wondered whether it was ultimately the right career choice for me.
I went on to start a family and move to Kitchener-Waterloo. I fell in love with the way people smiled at each other on the streets and trails, the movement to support local businesses, and the strong sense of community. I knew instantly that this was a great place to call home.
I did some freelance work and eventually some part-time administrative work with Bob Bunker Homes. Real estate stuck with me. It is a perfect balance of everything I love – research, planning, creativity, and, most of all, client care. I am grateful that I found my way here and to this community. I am so excited to be a part of the TrilliumWest team and to support clients during one of the most rewarding experiences of their lives.”
|My Difference||“Organization: My endeavours – from running my own dog and house sitting business in undergrad to wearing multiple hats at a startup – have demanded strong organizational skills. I have a lot of practice at being organized; but mostly, I just love it.|
Loyalty: When someone puts their trust in me, I take it seriously. I will do everything I can to act on their behalf to achieve their goals.
Discipline: I grew up on a farm in rural Ontario, so early morning chores were the norm. Although I did not appreciate this back then, I do now, as this discipline has undoubtedly helped me to achieve what I have today.”
