A little bit about you:
I was born and raised in Albania and recently moved to Canada to continue my studies and pursue great opportunities. I am a traveller, always looking for new adventures and connections! I believe my passion for Human Resources comes from my ability to connect with people, help them realize their needs and happily work along them to help achieve their goals!

A little bit about your role at PWB:
As an HR manager, I serve as a link between management and the team. I attract, motivate and keep qualified candidates while doing my best to match them with the positions they are best suited for. I support by coordinating the administrative functions of the organization and I help oversee recruiting, hiring and training of the new staff.

I am also prompt to help any team member with any Human Resources related issue.

When you are not working, what do you enjoy doing?
1. Traveling and exploring new places
2. Dancing (alone or in company)
3. Learning something new from everyone

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a:
An Archeologist. There was something about the puzzle-like evidence; gathering it and figuring out the mystery behind It all!

The best piece of advice I've ever been given is:
“You were given two ears, two eyes and one mouth. Use them in that proportion.”
Listen and observe more than you talk. :)

Favourite quote:

“A boat is always safer in the harbor, but that’s not what boats are built for”

I believe stepping out of your comfort zone is the first step towards your success.
