My career path is

When I was in school, I had no career plan in mind. Education and personal development were my priorities during my youth. I was always confident that I was going to find a job to the extent of my abilities and ambitions in one way or another. I enjoy serving the needs of my community. Over the years, I have worked at a number of organizations that provided care to vulnerable or at-risk members of our society.

My advice to others

The world of work is vast and everyone has their place. The important thing in a career is to love what you do and do it with passion. Compensation is secondary. You have to be happy!

My advice to others
How I affect people's livesThe customers of our program benefit directly by having good, nutritious meals that they need.  I put a lot of energy into my work. I feel that my work is relevant despite the fact that I work in a highly devalued environment.

What I do at work

On a day-to-day basis, I supervise a hot meal delivery program for elderly or frail customers. Our organization, Meals on Wheels (Ottawa), delivers more than 300 hot and frozen meals 6 days a week.

A team of dedicated volunteers makes our deliveries. As a result, teamwork is essential to our success. These volunteers check in on our customers and help ensure their health. I ensure the health of my team on a daily basis. Bilingualism is a great asset in Ottawa.
