I take pride in being a woman in leadership within my organization, and actively mentor and empower women on our team that are eager to grow, progress & achieve their goals. In 2017 I kickstarted our partnership with Canada’s Learning Code and launched our in-house Employee Reward Program, which embraces a variety of lifestyle choices and allows our team members to recognize one another’s effort, work & accomplishments.

Prior to joining TAL Group, I was part of the Marketing Team for the Walt Disney Company in Canada.
