I joined the Tradebank team 3 years ago and enjoy that my work includes any and everything that needs to be done, from general administration to finance and human resources. I love the rhythms of my day, meeting and greeting our clients, as well as having the opportunity to learn and stretch my knowledge. Being a part of our administrative team, I have the opportunity to interact with everyone from clients, to our corporate office team, to the larger Canadian franchise team; I get to touch every part of Tradebank, which is so exciting! Tradebank has a fun and friendly culture, and it has allowed me the flexibility and focus I need with my family. 

My formal education includes a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology as well as a post-graduate Diploma in Human Resources. I have worked in the medical field as well as hospitality, which have both provided me huge insight into how to best serve our clients and franchisees in a friendly and knowledgeable way. The concept of barter is not new for me, but I love the framework of Tradebank, that how our clients use the network is always 100% up to them, and can be such a game-changer for their business!

Outside of work, I enjoy time with my friends and family, a good cup of tea, singing in my car, and running. I also try to make time to practice gratitude every day. Ronald McDonald House Hamilton is very near and dear to my family’s heart, and I regularly participate in fundraising opportunities to help support the House, as well as other local and global causes.
