As a kid, growing up in a small town two hours north of Toronto, I never thought I would leave. Surrounded by beautiful lakes and constant peace and quiet, it was upsetting to even think about moving. Until, of course, I was old enough to leave.

With only one month left before graduating from high school, I was still unsure of what I would do next. While doing some research on potential travel destinations, I received an offer from Wilfrid Laurier University for their Communications program. I immediately accepted this offer and couldn’t wait to experience university life. Unfortunately after my first year in Waterloo, Ontario, I realized that I wasn’t in the right place. I quickly made the decision to move home, where I took the following year to work and figure out my next steps.

My next move was to Toronto to attend George Brown College for Business Marketing. During my second year, I was very fortunate to meet Sheila Cassidy, the Director for The Great Canadian Sales Competition. After hearing about the Competition in my sales class, I knew it was something I needed to be a part of. I was hired on as an Ambassador and the Team Lead for George Brown College. As a result, our team achieved 175% to target of submissions, ranking in the Top 25% of all participating schools in Canada.

I recently decided to extend my stay at GBC – I’m now apart of the Advanced Business Marketing program and will be graduating in December 2016. I’m very excited to be on-board for the third year of  The Great Canadian Sales Competition as the Competition Liaison and Host!


For the love of sales!
