TEAM ENGAGEMENT & HIRING SPECIALIST

Where I’m from: I currently reside in Southern California, but am originally from Ontario, Canada.

When I’m not curled up with a book, I love to travel and explore new places, and when I’m feeling more introverted, I like to whip up some new recipes in the kitchen and enjoy some quality time at home.

Something interesting about me: I may have left the great white north behind to be with my hubby, but don’t be fooled – I’m still a true-blue Canuck at heart! Maple syrup is practically coursing through my veins, and I’d give anything for a piping hot cup of Timmies.

I did this for over 20 years while raising my children as I volunteered with many local non-profits. At NPM I can spread my reach and help non-profits around the country!
