WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT BEING PART OF THE SCOTT BUILDERS TEAM?
We stay true to our purpose…”We create great workplaces” and we do that not only for our clients but for our employees. I believe for an organization to be successful you need great people and that means having a great company built on a strong reputation that stays true to its values of respect and creating an environment employees want to be a part of.
WHAT INITIALLY DREW YOU TO THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY & WHAT MADE YOU STAY?
I was initially drawn to Scott Builders’ reputation within the community and in Alberta. I am eager to bring my HR expertise to the team and contribute to the company’s continued success.
WHEN YOU’RE NOT HARD AT WORK, WHERE CAN WE FIND YOU?
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and our beloved golden doodle, Cooper. I love to travel and explore the outdoors, taking advantage of the many opportunities for outdoor activities that our province has to offer. When I’m not out adventuring, I can often be found relaxing in my backyard, enjoying some well-deserved downtime.
SOMEONE YOU ADMIRE? (OR YOUR HERO)
I deeply admire my father for his many qualities, including his patience, kindness, determination, drive, and focus. He is a very successful small business owner with an entrepreneurial spirit, but he made sure his family always came first. Despite experiencing set backs in the past, he never gave up on his dreams and those challenges have contributed to his continued success. My father has a passion for travel and adventure, and he loves friendly competition in anything from Scrabble to pickleball. His spark for life and his lightheartedness brings a smile to everyone he meets. He has taught me to be excited about life, celebrate the good times, and learn from life’s challenges. I think a great quote that reflects my father is: “Life is not a journey to be rushed; it’s a journey to be savored.”
