Receptionist and administrative assistant, Membership Services

What is your job description at LO?

My main job is to assist callers and visitors to LO. This at times may entail directing them to the appropriate staff persons, the board room, assisting them with our websites or directions to locate the LO home office. Along with overseeing new membership applications, I also help staff members with a variety of other tasks.  

What is your background before coming to LO, and when did you begin work at LO?

I began my employment at LO in April of 2002. Before that, I worked at Bell Canada, a market research company, then State Farm Insurance.

When not at work, where can you be found?

Most of my spare time is spent with my family or in my quilting room working on projects for my quilt guild, family or friends.  

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I always thought my mom’s life as a mother, wife and community volunteer was a lifestyle I would like.

What inspires you during your time at LO?

The members and staff at LO inspire me. I enjoy observing their creativeness and the feeling that I may have had some small part in their successes.

Name your all-time favourite movie, musical group and TV show.

My favourite movie is The Notebook and in music I like anything country, while watching TV it’s American Idol and Dancing with the Stars.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

England to visit where my mom grew up and visit with my family members who still live there.

Tell us one thing about you that few of your colleagues know about you.

I was chosen by a company I was doing market research for to do a TV commercial for Pears shampoo, along with my daughter. We did the typical commercial telling how Pears shampoo is our first choice in shampoos.
