I’m a Bluenoser from the East Coast who slowly made her way West with stops in Peterborough, Calgary, Banff and finally landed in Victoria. Most of my working life was spent in banking with forays into insurance, property development and the hospitality industry. And all the experience helped me land my position with Steve as his assistant in 2010.
I’m a water baby (after all, I am an Aquarian) and I love to spend time at the beach – whether it’s here in Victoria or on any one of the beautiful beaches along the Gulf Coast of Florida. My other love is food … whether it’s preparing it or sourcing it out. We have lots of local farmers markets here on the Island and any Saturday morning in the summer will find me making my way along my usual route for the best tomatoes, Dungeness crab, smoked salmon, apples or whatever happens to be in season.
Customer service has played a major role in every position I’ve ever held. I try to treat everyone exactly how I would want to be treated myself. When people say they can hear the smile in my voice over the phone – I know I’ve accomplished that.
