YOUR TRUSTED PARTNER
Our job is to make your job easier.
At HR Project Partners, it is our mission to uncomplicate HR issues, and deliver the best possible HR services and solutions to make your business run smoothly, so you can get back to focusing on the work at hand.
My passion has always been to help other people and to represent my company and myself professionally. I want others to trust and rely on us when they need help. Those are qualities that are important to me personally and to my company. My philosophy and a common thread throughout my whole career has been to help others. Being in business is not just about making money, to me it’s about helping candidates find meaningful employment and helping Clients hire qualified employees. I love to make that call that tells a candidate that they have been the one selected for the job.
As Owner and Principal Consultant with HR Project Partners, I am a dedicated Senior Professional with over 20 years’ experience in various fields, including: Human Resources Management, Project Coordination, Communications, Public Relations, Training, Labour Relations, Industrial/Provincial Benefits Agreements, Employee Assistance Programs, Community Development, Stakeholder Engagement, Non-Profit Organizations and Socio-Economic impacts.
My experience includes working within heavy industrial environments, construction, oil and gas, mining and non-profit organizations. I have worked on both EPCM Projects and within a corporate environment and I know the resources needed to work in both.
My unique experiences working with a diverse range of individuals and organizations, from small to large, both private and public sectors has served me well in supporting the requirements of corporate and project initiatives, especially in challenging times. I have a reputation for resolving issues, getting results and supporting relationship building through knowledge, experience, common sense, honesty, trust and integrity.
My formal education includes obtaining a Bachelor of Social Work Degree and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology and Psychology from Memorial University of Newfoundland. I have also completed my Masters Certificate in Project Management and have my certification as a Project Management Professional. I am currently a member with Chartered Professionals in Human Resources in Newfoundland and Labrador, a member with Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Social Workers and member of the Project Management Institute.
HR RECRUITMENT ADVISOR
I am a graduate from Memorial University of Newfoundland. I graduated in 2014 with a Degree in Bachelor of Commerce (Co-op) and focused my studies in Human Resources and Labour Relations. I am currently a member with Chartered Professionals in Human Resources in Newfoundland and Labrador.
I have more than 4 years’ experience in a Human Resources capacity. I have been involved in both large scale and small-scale recruitment from a project environment, to government, and to consulting. I have worked on a large scale oil and gas project in Newfoundland and was successful in the process of recruiting and on-boarding hundreds of craft and staff personnel and meeting the requirements of the Provincial Industrial Benefits Agreements and Collective Agreement. My involvement and work experience with government has allowed me to become well versed in the recruitment of unionized personnel, as well, and abiding by the Collective Agreement as it relates to recruitment. I have worked with two consulting companies as a Coordinator delivering various Human Resources functions such as recruitment, policy and procedure development, on-boarding new staff, development of employment contracts and offer letters, and ensuring compliance with Labour Standards regulations.
Recruitment is one of the areas of Human Resources I am most passionate about. I enjoy working with, and helping others, whether it be colleagues, clients or candidates. I have volunteered most of my life and giving back to our communities is very rewarding. I feel that working in Human Resources allows me to do my job and also give back in one way or another.
HR RECRUITMENT ADVISOR
My Formal education includes an Office Administration diploma and a Business Management – Human Recourses Management diploma from The College of the North Atlantic in Newfoundland.
I have 12 years’ professional experience in all areas of Human Resources and Labour Relations. Most of my career has been spent working on construction sites where I was the main point of contact for union representatives and managers. This includes working on large scale projects in Newfoundland and Labrador, Alberta and Ontario as well as, working with apprenticeship boards across Canada. I have extensive experience in recruiting in a unionized environment, as well as recruiting in a non-unionized environment. Most recently, I have spent time in a corporate setting, working in the fields of recruitment, and compensation and benefits. My career has allowed me to work in a variety of industries, including oil and gas, construction, consulting and software development. I have also worked with different Impacts and Benefits Agreements (IBA) supporting the Indigenous peoples of Canada, this would include Inuit, Metis, and First Nations.
My background consists of being a recruitment administrator, generalist, advisor (supervisor) and coordinator with experience in recruitment, selection, retention, coaching, policy and procedure development, staff development, employment law, labour standards (for all provinces), investigations, performance management, employee benefits, conflict resolution, and temporary foreign worker recruitment.
Both construction and corporate working environments, are very unique and challenging in different ways, but it has allowed me to grow as a Human Resources and Labour Relations professional, and with this, I am able to offer this diversity to colleagues, clients and candidates.
People always ask me why I chose to go in Human resources; my answer was then, and is still the reason I do it today; I love calling a candidate and telling him/her that they are hired. The pure excitement and almost relief in their voices is why I enjoy coming to work every day. At times, and depending on the economy, it can be a challenge to obtain work and knowing you may have changed a person’s life makes it easier to do and love my job.
I am a recent graduate of the Business Management – Human Resources Management program from The College of the North Atlantic in Newfoundland. I chose to do this program after completing one year of general studies at Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) and realized I hadn’t decided on a career path. I left MUN with intentions of taking a year off from post-secondary to work full time. I researched programs at The College of the North Atlantic and other colleges around St. John’s that involved my interests of working with and helping people. I researched the Business Management Program and realized it was something that attracted my attention, related to me, and it was a choice that I could build a career around, while enjoying going to work everyday.
Before finishing my Diploma I completed a 6 week work term with a Recruitment Agency in which I provided support to the recruitment team and other office support as it was needed. My working experience in Customer Service for more than 6 years has provided me with a well-rounded and personable approach for Human Resources. I enjoy interacting with different people everyday, and it is a rewarding feeling when helping others. Based on my experience in Customer Service, and the feedback I received from coworkers and customers, I realized that Human Resources was a field I was eager to work in.
I started at HR Project Partners in July 2018 as a HR Assistant, where I provide support to the recruitment team. I assist with developing job descriptions, postings, document formatting, and other office support. I am always keen to learn, and develop my skills in Human Resources.
In 2009 I received a certificate in Office Administration from Nova Scotia Community College. I completed a 6-week work term as a School Secretary. I focused my studies in accounting while doing the Office Administration Program.
I have 3 years’ experience owning and operating my own business and managing the business finances and retention with a strong focus in Customer Service. In that time, I did my own inventory control and business management.
After completing my work term as a school secretary, I continued to then work in that capacity. These duties included staff payroll, school finance control and other school office administration duties. I also managed the staff and student attendance. My other professional experience over the years has lead me to gain valuable experience in supporting accounting departments, crewing and staffing management and diligently keeping all administrative accepts of my job processed efficiently. In this time, I also found a niche in cost control and management.
My most recent experience has been in the capacity of recruitment support and administrative support in a recruitment office providing project personnel to mega oil and gas construction projects in Newfoundland and Labrador. During that time going beyond those duties by helping introduce offshore personnel to the company’s profile.
I have a strong desire to continue my education in Human Resources and Office Administration. I started at HR Project Partners in April 2018 as an Office Administrator providing Payroll, Accounts Receivable/Payable and Cost Control support.
