As a broker, I love that every day is different working at Tradebank. I love when the office is a buzz with deals and offers clients get excited about. I really enjoy building rapport with my clients, especially the ones that really “get trade”, the ones that use the system on a regular basis. Being a good broker is very relationship-based. I am investing in their business as well – helping them think and create within their own business. It is great for clients who are trying to get established, and I love that Tradebank works the same as cash – no points or “bucks”. It’s the same as cash!
My experience is vast and varied. In college I studied social services, specifically the area of gerontology. While I was in school I worked weekends at the Hamilton Association of Community Living. For 5 years I lived in Amsterdam where I learned conversational Dutch, and I owned and operated a bar for 3 years. When I returned to Canada I worked in sales for a very large flooring manufacturer and distributer. I also spent time with a transportation company, a newspaper, and in the coffee industry. Working at Tradebank has been great because we have a lot of fun in the office and we are very family-oriented. I love that I can be home with my kids in the evenings and on weekends.
My social life is pretty filled with my kids. I am the proud wife of a police officer and the mother of 2 girls. We spend our summers at the trailer, and in winter I hibernate with wine. I love being crafty and getting down and dirty with my kids on the floor; that is where I am happiest.
