How long have you been working at DFS Vancouver? 5 years as a volunteer stylist, full time position since March 2013.
What is the best thing about working here? Any memorable moments? The best thing- our mission! To help women become successful in work and life. The amazing volunteers, the wonderful donors and supporters, and our clients. Memorable moments: seeing women's confidence build, a sparkle in their eye, a smile at the end of a visit. Hearing about their successes with getting a new job!
What do you do with your time outside of the 9-5 with DFS Vancouver? Currently, enjoying the many festivals around the city. I am a Food Network fan and love ethnic cafe's, food carts, and cooking. I also collect original art and have a library of Art Gallery books from around the world. They are great souvenirs from my travels.
Who is your style icon? Audrey Hepburn. Daniel Craig. Couple: Victoria and David Beckham.
Dream vacation? Greece seems to be calling. I see it everywhere. Hopefully next year.
What is your motto? Be yourself. Everyone else is taken :)
