Moving from Toronto in the fall of 1988 to the West Coast was an exciting adventure. My husband’s job transferred to Calgary and I left my employment at a stock brokerage firm.
By February 1989, I worked for a small energy software company on the Sales and Support Team. Over the course of my career, I survived five mergers and acquisitions! Ultimately I earned a position in the HR team of a large multi-national corporation.
My HR role at Halliburton was to support all employees across Canada in 9 diverse product service lines. As the HR Supervisor, I supported all facets of HR that included: recruiting, compensation, benefits, employee relations, succession management, training & development, mergers and acquisitions.
I graduated from Mount Royal University with a Human Resources Certificate in Business Administration in 2006 (an accomplishment when you consider I was working full-time and had two small children at home while attending night school – whew). I am very excited to be a Human Resources Catalyst at REAL HR and look forward to working with our clients on specific project-based work.
In my spare time, I enjoy fitness classes, the great outdoors at the cabin, volunteering, reading, and Pinterest garden projects.
