WHAT YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT ME
“If I’m not in the office, at a charity event, sweating through a spin class or on an Air Canada flight, then I’m at home (indulging in my favourite guilty pleasure – a bowl ice cream with chipettes), alongside my family and our golden retriever, Luna.”
“At ZLC we’re in a relationship business; I believe success comes from working with, and getting to know, like-minded caring people who share the same values. For me [personally], it has been one of the joys of my life meeting so many talented individuals…The main thing is making sure that we’re making a difference and that we’re significant in whatever we do.”
