I am a university graduate, educated in the field of Communications. Upon completion of my university degree I explored the world of fashion by taking an international course located in London, England, which lead to my certification as a Fashion Style/Image Consultant.  Going to school in London was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. I was immersed in such a beautiful culture where everyone had his or her own style (the term ‘Street style” was derived from London because of the way people dressed there).  I learned everything from how trends have evolved and how important it is for all individuals to present themselves for success. 

Upon returning from London I continued my education in fashion at George Brown College, receiving a diploma in Fashion Business. When I completed my diploma I began working for a retail company as a fashion buyer. Shortly into my career I discovered that fashion was something that I absolutely adored but decided it was not my career of choice.    

The next phase in my working career brought me to a Toronto law firm, where I took on a position as an administrative assistant. In this position I worked closely with the Human Resources Manager and I discovered my love for HR. Human Resources is the process of linking the HR function, such as recruiting, selection, performance management, employee and career development, succession planning, retirement and termination, with the strategic objectives of the organization in order to improve performance. 

After a year of working at the law office I decided to go back to school and expand my knowledge of Human Resources. This is where I learned that people are an organization’s strongest resource and supporting initiatives to build an empowered, respected and informed employee, is exactly what I wanted to do. Shortly thereafter, I was headhunted by Operations Manager Sarah Gowdy, for their new Operations Associate role. I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to work and learn alongside such a hard working group of individuals at Sales Talent Agency.

For the love of sales!
