Vice President, Membership
Currently working as a Project Manager for Electronic Arts I have had the privilege of working on and managing 3 triple-A titles, FIFA, NHL & UFC. I have been able to sharpen my project management skills managing stakeholder requests, developing a strong team and fostering long lasting and deep relationships with team members on site and around the world. Prior to my work at EA I have also worked either as a Project Manager or supported short-term efficiency projects in industrial manufacturing, hospitality, and an environmental lab.
Continuous learning is a personal goal which I pursue every year. My formal education is in Business specialized in human resources, and project management. I have been PMP certified and volunteering with the Project Management Institute CWCC since early 2016. Teaching and supporting others has always been very important to me which is why I have transitioned into a new role as a BCIT night school instructor for a Project Management course (PMI certified course).
Living a balanced healthy lifestyle can be somewhat of a challenge, however, I meditate daily, go to the gym a minimum of 4 times a week and try to cook when I can. I dedicate up to 2hrs every day watching or reading world current events as I find it fascinating and very relevant to the project management field. Another (new found) interest of mine has been going to different networking events ranging from events at the Vancouver Art Gallery to The Digital Project Managers Meetup at Mobify.
Overall, connecting with people and broadening my perspective is where I focus my attention. I then look for ways to tie this into how I perform as a Project Manager.
