What is your name?
Who do you work with?
Where in Canada are you based?
White Rock, B.C.
Please introduce yourself in 10 words or less.
I feed off of team collaboration, and love for one another. When I become obsessed with a vision, I don’t take my eyes off of it.
What is your favourite part of your job?
100% the ability to help others. As an Employee Benefits Advisor, I feel that I have the power to guide employers in the right direction who then are able to alleviate some of the most common stressors for their employees. Ultimately building a great community around us.
What career advice would you give to your younger self?
Everything will be okay. Be positive, share the energy, and don’t forget that you can have fun.
What is a recent book or movie that you would recommend?
I am in the midst of reading the “Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work and Life.” As I am almost at the end, I feel this book is a must-read for anyone wanting to improve their overall productivity, learn how to deal with ongoing stressors, and generate positivity in their lives.
What is your favourite thing to do on the weekend?
I like to stay constantly busy throughout the week and on the weekends. Whether it’s training for my competitions in Obstacle Course Racing, playing ice hockey with friends or spending time with my partner, I am always trying to get out of the house. As an adventurer, I am always willing to feel discomfort, travel to new destinations in the world, and live beyond my fears.
