I grew up in a military family and had the opportunity to live in several cities and provinces in Canada. Relocating virtually every year, I became accustomed to integrating myself into new environments and meeting people and developing friendships became the norm.
My career began in the medical laboratory field, first as a lab technician and then advancing to supervisory / management roles. Through this experience, I developed a foundation in business administration, human resources and workplace health and safety. Kingston became my home in 1999 when I was able to secure a job transfer which allowed me to move closer to family. After fifteen years within the lab industry, eventual downsizing nudged me to explore other career opportunities.
I joined Collins Blay as Office Manager in 2013 and work closely with the firm’s partners to manage key business functions and overall operations of the firm. Human resource management is a large component of my role and I am continuously on the lookout for new talent to join our dynamic team of professionals. I value the culture within our firm, the foundation of which is collaboration and team work and I enjoy the many opportunities that I have to interact with our employees, clients and visitors.
