1. How did you get into your current job position?1381540_10151931415504721_1140558003_n
Back in University, I discovered a passion for marketing. Unlike previous passions of mine (the Spice Girls, neon eyeliner, and mood rings to name a few), this one stuck. I wasn’t sure exactly which route I wanted to take when I got my degree; only that I wanted to end up with a career that allowed me to do what I loved.
About a year after I graduated, I relocated to Edmonton and was perusing job ads on Indeed when I came across the ad for an Administrator/Marketing Coordinator for Innovative Mortgage Solutions. I remember their ad sticking out in my mind particularly because I felt like it would be such a perfect opportunity for me – I had a Business Administration Diploma and a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing. This was my chance to start a career doing something that made me happy. When Mike called me back to let me know that I got the job, I may or may not have let my excitement get the best of me as I practically yelled my gratitude over the phone.
2. What is your favourite part of your job?
The people are great, the commute isn’t bad and it doesn’t hurt that my desk is 10 feet away from the kitchen. In all seriousness, my favourite part of working for IMS has got to be exactly what I mentioned earlier – that I come into work every day and I get to do something I genuinely like to do. It’s been really exciting for me to see my ideas come to fruition and the sense of satisfaction I get from this really helps keep me motivated.
3. What do you do in your spare time?
Is Pinterest considered a hobby? It really should be, even if I pin 5000 things in one sitting and never actually do anything I’m pinning about.
I love to bake. I’m a big fan of reading although I will admit that I don’t read as much as I’d like anymore, because Netflix. I also really like finding different activities to do with my 2 year old son – whether it be swimming, picnics, going to the park or just staying at home and playing monster trucks – keeping up with a toddler is exhausting!
4. What do you see for your future at Innovative Mortgage Solutions?
I’m fortunate enough to work for a company that believes in professional growth for their employees, which means that I get to take exciting new courses and continue learning throughout my career. I think this is really important not only because marketing is such a fast-paced industry that’s constantly changing, but because it shows that I’m valued as an employee. I hope to take advantage of all these opportunities and use them to further my career here at IMS; I’d love to be around to watch this company grow and I hope to be an integral part of that growth.
