What different roles have you held throughout your career?
I started as an accountant before realizing law was for me. It was a fun transition to see businesses through multiple lenses and has allowed me to be practical and pragmatic with legal advice as well as better understand client needs.
How did you start your career in the equipment finance industry?
Through mentorship! Jonathan Fleisher, a mainstay in the Canadian equipment finance industry, wanted to show me an area of law suited for a small-town business-minded professional. He taught me the ropes and showed me the amazing industry that has become a way of life!
What is the best piece of career advice you've been given?
Be yourself. We all work too hard to try to be anyone else!
Who has been the biggest influence on your life and why?
My dad. He is always one to impart wisdom and the person to call when something goes wrong. He is the sober second thought and voice of reason. I am forever grateful for technology making a big world smaller and enabling us to speak to parents and families in many mediums.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and your family.
I live in Toronto, Ontario with my husband Drew and our three-year-old Liv. We love weekends at the park, evenings watching swimming lessons, and many trips for ice cream! Watching life through the eyes of a three-year-old is frustrating and magical rolled into one!
