meet … my boss

the director of ecommerce
Above: Katherine is the Director of Ecommerce and of our Guest Education Center. She is fearless, talented, passionate and humble. She knows how to get what she wants and get things done. She's also my boss!

What is your role at lululemon?

Director of Ecommerce / Guest Education Centre.

What's your favourite part of your workday?

Birthday celebrations/baby showers (there’s a cake every week!).

How do you think others would describe you?

Passionate – I love my job, food, lululemon, podcasts, travel - basically a lot of things.

What's your favourite yoga class? Why?

I love hot yoga. It is a hard work out, and I feel incredible after.

How do you usually sweat once a day?

Running. My favorite schedule is arriving to the office, hammering out some emails and then hitting the pavement.

What’s one activity/fitness trend that you’ve been dying to try?

Bar Method. I did it a few times, and it was brutal.

What’s your biggest guilty pleasure?

McDonalds – Big Mac Meal, large fries and vanilla milk shake (yes, I know – poison).

Chip Wilson grants you the ability to switch places with another person at lululemon for one day – who do you choose?

I would be Eric Petersen, our head of Community. From the Olympics to branding to local events – what an exciting job!

What are your words to live by?

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” Reminds me to appreciate every moment, touch others, make a contribution, and life to the fullest.

Interested in learning from the best and joining our team? We're actually hiring for two pretty great roles that would allow you to work for and learn from brilliant people like Katherine. We're hiring an Ecommerce Operations Manager and a Guest Insight Analyst! And, I can personally confirm that every day is a party on the Ecomm team.

Super cool! Love seeing the ‘behind the scenes’ people. They are always so passionate and driven! I hope they know how inspiring they are!

PLEASE place a lululemon outlet in Regina!!! We are the same size as Saskatoon and have a university and trade school. It is so frustrating to have to wait to go on a trip!

Katherine, you sound like a great boss. I live in India and dream of one day moving to the US or Canada and working for a great manager like you. Maybe I will apply for one of the jobs that you have on offer
