I have two incredible daughters (of course, I am biased), one is now adulting as a Paramedic in Sudbury, Ontario, and the other is discovering her passion for law at Wilfred Laurier University. Watching them start their first jobs, grow, and develop into bright young women has been an amazing experience that I am thankful for and why I get out there every day to change the future of work and build happier workplaces.
Oxford Human Resources Group was born out of my passion for people and doing the right thing in business. I have a mission to inspire business owners to create happier workplaces. I genuinely believe that in business, we can create compliance and an engaged workforce that drives the business forward. It does not matter how technology changes our business; we are human and will always relate to each other on that level.
I like to think of myself as a driven, results-oriented, strategic human resources and occupational health & safety professional. I do have over 17 years of exciting and complex experience. I have served leaders and employees in both federally & provincially regulated workplaces in various industries, including manufacturing, telecommunications, health care, retail, and service. I also enjoy the fun of teaching new HR & Safety professionals as an instructor with Conestoga College, teaching in the Human Resources Management and Occupational Health & Wellness programs.
I believe in lifelong learning. I am a perpetual student, currently enrolled in the Communications program at Western University. I hold a College Diploma in Finance & Accounting from Niagara College and diplomas in Human Resources Management and Occupational Health & Safety from Conestoga College.
Additionally, I am proud to hold my Certified Human Resources Leader (CHRL) designation from the Ontario Human Resources Professional Association and my Canadian Registered Safety Professional (CRSP) designation from the Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals.
PS ~ I love coffee. A lot.
