When you were a kid, what career did you want to have?

When I was in grade school I really wanted to be a veterinarian. That was until my cat had surgery and I found out the job was a lot more involved than simply playing with animals all day.

What do you do at Career Cruising?

As an ccPathfinder Implementation Manager, I am responsible for supporting and training schools and districts, so that they can take full advantage of what our online educational planning tool, ccPathfinder, has to offer.

What do you love to do outside of work?

I am always re-decorating our home; whether it’s a small seasonal change or a complete room makeover. I also love to shop which works really well with my love of decorating.

What are you extremely passionate about? Why?

I am extremely passionate about my family, which includes my son, daughter and large extended family.  I do my best to make sure we all get together as often as possible.

What’s your favourite book? Why?

The Many Lives  & Secret Sorrows of Josephine B.  by Sandra Guillard. I loved reading the whole trilogy!

Which historical figure would you want to have dinner with? What would you discuss?

I would love to sit down with Louis XIV, also known as “The Sun King”. I have been to Versailles a dozen times and would love to know what court life was really like back then.

Superhero power you wish you had and why.

I wish my family and I had the ability to fly. It would make getting to the cottage on busy Friday nights so much easier!
