Joining the Sharing Circle, BMO’s Indigenous employee resource group, has brought me closer to my heritage and learning more from others makes me a more well-rounded individual.



What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?

The most rewarding part of my job is that I get to connect with all types of people from all backgrounds. It allows me to do what I love, being creative! Joining the Sharing Circle, BMO’s Indigenous employee resource group, has brought me closer to my heritage and learning more from others makes me a more well-rounded individual.

What has helped you in your career development and what lessons have you learned along the way as you explored new opportunities at BMO?

Being able to be mentored by Gayle Ramsay has been instrumental in my career at BMO. She has taught me to be true to myself and go for what I want. Networking is the key to success as you never know where it will lead you.

The lesson I have learned along the way is to soften my communication and be concise in how I write. This has helped me work better with business groups and colleagues.

What are you currently working on that is helping you build on different skills?

I have been accepted to be part of the Agile Bootcamp and once the next session is ready to get started, I’ll be in that group. I’m looking forward to this as that is the mindset of BMO for the future.

What excites you about the next year ahead?

I’m excited about what lies ahead and the possibilities of a new position and new challenges. I am always up for a challenge and new things to learn.
