I first started with Acres when I was in-between semesters at school because it was my summer break. I ran into Finlay at church and he mentioned that Acres was looking for someone who can do design work, and I can do that! So, he recommended me, and I started there just as a summer internship type thing. Then I went back to school, and when a full-time position opened up, Acres called me up and I officially joined the team!

I really enjoy seeing the data I get to work with turned into reality. I get to see things get built up as a project moves along, and it really is rewarding to see the progress and data come to life.

Oh, it all depends on the season! During the springtime, I love to mountain bike. I also sing at church. Itโ€™s a little bit different right now of course as we pre-record everything for online services, but I always look forward to that.

I sang in choir throughout high school and also the Kamloops Choir. I continue to sing to this day at my church.

I watch shows more than movies, but if I have to choose one movie I could watch over and over again, it would be Sahara. Steve Zahn is great in that movie!

Everybody is just really friendly. Thatโ€™s something I felt right away. Everyone is comfortable at Acres, and we all take care of one another. Itโ€™s a very welcoming work environment.

We get all four seasons, which is great! And really, Kamloops just feels like home and it has a good sense of community. Itโ€™s a city, but itโ€™s small enough that you feel connected to people. Thereโ€™s always a high chance when Iโ€™m out and about, that Iโ€™ll see someone I know. I love running into people that I know.

Thereโ€™s a default one I have to include โ€“ soft tacos. I think eat tacos more than anything else. If there was only one thing I could eat for the rest of my life, it would be tacos all the way!ย
