Getting to Balanced Perspectives
Life is about the journey-Jennifer.
My work journey took me from Canada’s East coast to Nunavut and Alberta in 2009. I have put my HR expertise to work in various sectors: from unionized
provincial/territorial governments and cash-strapped not-for-profits to
national and international companies plus professional businesses and oil and
gas start-ups. This diversity of experience (and the resulting ‘trial by fire’
moments) has given me a broad set of tools and skills for helping companies
grow the strength of their teams.
Human Resources is not an all or nothing area when it comes to interpretation of
policies and development of procedures. As an HR professional, it is my job to
read, review and provide perspective. I balance the risk for companies against
the needs of employees.
Whether it’s two people in a coffee shop or 250 students in an auditorium: one of my passions is teaching others about Human Resources. I am a part-time lecturer at Northwestern Polytechnic (formerly Grande Prairie Regional College), leading
courses and conversations in the Human Resources Certificate program and several courses in the Service Excellence Blue Pin Certificate-helping bring better customer service to the area.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Home Economics, a Master of Education in Adult
Learning, and my Bookkeeping certification. I hold my Professional Home
Ecologist and Chartered Professional in Human Resources designations. I
recently received my Senior Certified Professional status with the International
Society for Human Resource Management.
Presently I am the President of the Sexsmith and District Chamber of Commerce and have recently started volunteering with the local 4-H.
My entire work portfolio is available on LinkedIn.
To provide balance to my schedule, when the weather is nice, you’ll find me
camping or riding my ATV on the trails of Northwest Alberta with my husband,
Dave. When the weather isn’t cooperating, the other 7 months of the year, I can
be found in my sewing room hanging out with my Supurrvisors, Hudson and Sabrina.
My travels have taken me to India, Vietnam and Argentina as a Habitat for Humanity volunteer, and extensive time in Europe and the UK visiting Dave’s family and friends.
