Hello everyone! I am from Winnipeg, Manitoba, and I have lived in Tokyo with my husband and two boys since 2004. I serve as a tenure-track faculty member in the department of International Liberal Arts at Soka University. I have been working in the field of education since 1993 and I have taught in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Right before coming to Japan, I worked on government-funded peace projects affiliated with the University of Haifa, which focused on the promotion of tolerance of ethnic and religious diversity in the region and on the inclusion of people with disabilities in mainstream classrooms.
I’m currently the CEO of CPI Inc., a company that provides training in the areas of presentation and management skills. Our clients include NEC, Saizeriya, Volvo, Toyota, Fox Japan, Showa Shell and Google. I grew up in Toronto and consider myself to be a Canadian at heart. I would like to participate in CCCJ activities in order to help bring Canadian companies to Japan and promote Japanese companies in Canada.
I am originally from Boston—close enough to Canada—and I have been living in Tokyo for about 15 years. I am working for AoyamaTreehouse, a newly opened membership-based facility, as a corporate sales director. I joined the CCCJ on behalf of my company because they believe my character suits Canada. I’ve been playing hockey since I was a kid, and I am a big fan of the Edmonton Oilers. I play hockey twice a week in Tokyo and Yokohama. I am looking forward to meeting CCCJ members and possibly welcoming you to AoyamaTreehouse for events and dinners!
Seven months ago, my family and I moved to Japan from the United States, where I was a senior manager of strategic initiatives at The Home Depot. I thoroughly enjoy leading teams that execute strategic projects and use data to drive decisions. I hope to find the perfect place to contribute in Tokyo. I joined the CCCJ as a member of McGill’s incoming MBA class, and look forward to making new, lasting connections.
