Why I love what I do
I’ve always loved words. At school, when we were asked to write something, I always wrote more than was asked and I was always happy to give presentations—something my classmates feared.
During my first year in university, I found a job working for the City of Mont‑Tremblant in the Communications and Public Relations Department, where I got a chance to hone my skills and confirm that I was passionate about communications.
So what does it mean, exactly, to be passionate about communication? It’s the belief that communication can heal all wounds. In our profession, it’s being driven by the desire to help people—in our case, our clients—to make themselves heard and be understood.
At CASACOM, I’ve found people who not only share my passion, but also my values and my belief in commitment, motivation, curiosity, and listening. At CASACOM, we often say that we want to elevate our clients and the team. Truer words were never spoken. As soon as I started with CASACOM, fresh out of university, I was entrusted with projects that pushed back my limits and got me learning in high gear. That really fueled my love of communications.
I love to learn. One of my goals in life is to build up a huge library. Psychology, management, history, art, architecture, communications theory, new techniques, the environment, biology— my curiosity keeps me pretty busy! In terms of hobbies, I love skiing, running, trying to keep up with my boyfriend on a road bike, cooking, and especially trying new foods. Travel‑wise, I’ve explored the length and breadth of Quebec and have my sights set on the rest of the world.
