About me

I was born/grew up: London, Ontario Canada

I now live in: London, Ontario Canada

I completed my training/education at: Western University, Windsor University

What I do at work

In my role I take care of over 6000 people's work schedules. My team and I research the different ways that companies create and offer schedules to their employees and make sure that we are being as fair and efficient as possible. This can involve a lot of testing. Although not directly STEM related, I use the scientific method quite a bit. This helps me with problem solving and ensures that I can make strong recommendations because I have the sound data to back it up.

My career path is

I originally thought I wanted to be a teacher. I loved Science in school and pursued it in University, and eventually Teacher's College. Unfortunately that career wasn't a good fit for me, but I always kept Science as a hobby. I'm glad I was able to find a career that allows me to use the skills I gained in my studies, even if not in a traditionally STEM-focused role.

I am motivated by

For the reasons above, the schedule of an employee is very important to them. I love that I am able to think creatively in my role and explore new ways of doing things. If we get an idea, we try it! We are able to do testing before and investigate if it will work before actually implementing the change and affecting people.

How I affect peoples’ lives

The schedule that an employee works directly impacts their life. It can change the amount of hours they see their family, whether they can play on a sports team and even their health.

Outside of work I

I love cooking, hiking, playing sports. Right now I am playing soccer, floor hockey, dodge ball and I also do yoga. I volunteer facilitating financial literacy courses for newcomers to Canada as well.

My advice to others

Each experience you have had is valuable. Just because you aren't in a labcoat doesn't mean that the scientific method can't be useful in your current job. Keep your mind open to different ways of thinking about things.
