Location: Montreal, QB
I was born the youngest of three children and typically described to people as the girl who walks to the beat of her own drum.
By the time I was in grade 1 and was asked the big question “What do you want to be when you grow up”; my answer was always a teacher.
When I finished high school, I started working in daycares and studying Early Childhood Education; in 2006, I heard about the Calgary “boom” and signed up on a nanny website; trying to do the right thing before moving out west and making sure I had somewhere to go.
I found a family expecting twins and wanted a live-in nanny for one year in Lethbridge. When I got to Lethbridge, they also had live-in students and decided to use the students as the extra help.
Not wanting to go home I took a greyhound to Calgary and got hired at TELUS. From that day my dream from wanting to be a teacher changed to customer service and technology.
