It was a few years ago when I was sitting reading yet another article about working mothers and how WE needed to change. How WE could work to fit neatly into the box that is work and I had enough.

Moms At Work was born. What started as a group of 50 women has grown to an active Facebook group with over 9 000 Canadian women. We support each other, cheer each other on, hang out at events, share job postings and advocate for the change that we want to see in the world.

But wait! Who am I? Right…..

I am the founder of both Moms at Work and a Career Coach at Careerlove, mama to 3 little boys and secret weapon for moms looking to create careers they love.

I have spent over a decade in Human Resources, coaching and consulting and in a super niche specialty as a return to work expert. I have interviewed over 2000 applicants for jobs, helped over 800 people return to work after maternity leave, injury and illness and coached individuals into more senior roles, new careers and new businesses. I have worked with companies ranging from 5 – 10,000 employees in industries ranging from consumer packaged goods, marketing, banking, tech, startups, engineering, non-profit, health care and government.

I may be the world’s friendliest person. If I have met you at the grocery store, in line at Starbucks or at my kid’s school, we are probably friends now.
