Sales manager, publications
What is your job description at LO?
I’m responsible for advertising revenues for Landscape Trades
and Horticulture Review
, as well as special projects.
What is your background before coming to LO, and when did you begin work at LO?
Hard to believe, I’ve been with LO for 18 years. Prior to this, I was with Baxter Travel Media in Toronto.
When not at work, where can you be found?
Down by the lake at Spencer Smith Park in Burlington with my three-year old granddaughter, Tessa, or in the kitchen with a new recipe, or container gardening, which I need a lot of help with.
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A teacher, particularly of young children.
What inspires you during your time at LO?
The people who volunteer their time – I truly admire it.
Name your all-time favourite movie, musical group and TV show.
I’m not a big movie fan, nor a TV watcher. Musically, I’m in a time warp. I still enjoy good rock, especially from the 70s — a tremendous period for that kind of music. I, do, however, enjoy Buble, Sinatra, Bennett, etc., but I cannot listen to any kind of country; opera, as well.
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Southeast Asia, again. I was there numerous times while working with Baxter in the 80s early 90s. It’s a fascinating part of the world.
Tell us one thing about you that few of your colleagues know about you.
I enjoy doing stained glass, and like Angela wrote in her profile, I cannot even look at a snake!
