Line of Service

I lead the National Campus Talent Acquisition Team for PwC Canada and thus support all areas of PwC’s business, ensuring we bring on board 850+ talented students every year.   

Why did you choose to work at PwC?

I joined PwC in 2006 in London, England as a campus recruiter. I was impressed by the opportunity to work for the leading professional services firm, the friendly and diverse culture and the international opportunities available. I'm still with PwC after 10 years because of the opportunities and the people. Each day, I learn something new, get exposed to a new concept or address a new challenge on behalf of the firm and work with fantastic people. I lead a team of infectiously passionate and enthusiastic campus recruiters and managers. 

What unique opportunities have you had with PwC?

I have moved from England to Canada with PwC, spent a week working in Singapore and visited our Vancouver, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Halifax and St John's offices. I sit on global calls with PwC Professionals from every major PwC territory.  I also have a network of friends and colleagues in PwC member firms in Asia, Australia, the USA, the UK and Europe.

Hobbies and Interests

I enjoy skiing, mountain biking, hiking and camping. I enjoy socializing and spending time with friends and colleagues over drinks and dinners. I also have a dog, Bramble, who demands a lot of attention!

What is your ‘personal brand’?

For me, a personal brand revolves around reputation – it's what people say about you when you leave the room. It's important to me to be authentic and bring my whole self to work, which PwC allows me to do. I harness an enthusiasm, passion, resilience and competitiveness at work and in my spare time.
