meet us on monday – marlene

Meet Marlene. She's the glue in our people resources team !

what is a goal you achieved that you're proud of?

Raising two amazing girls (with Brian’s help of course).

what is something unique or surprising about you?

I am fascinated by airplanes.  I love to watch them fly and the sounds they make…probably why I really enjoy living in Richmond.

what is one of your biggest passions?

Hockey – I am a die hard Canuck fan since I grew up in Vancouver and have a older brother.  I secretly dreamed of becoming the first women NHL coach when I was younger….

what is the scariest thing you've ever done?

Snorkeled for the first time last year and loved it!  I am extremely claustrophobic – I can swim great – but sticking my head underwater while figuring out how to blow in that tube made me a bit crazy at first

what is your favourite way to sweat?

Right now it’s the 30min Hit – but a great game of tennis is an amazing way to spend the afternoon!

Each Monday we introduce people from all over the company to you. Who do you want to meet next?

So glad you love airplanes…I am a female commercial pilot that wrote and published 4 books about flying.

Have a peek at and let me know how you like her…

Just finished a live play in Toronto a few years ago, Songs, Merchandise(Maybe Lululemon wants to make some pilot stuff for females?)

Future projects is a TV series in the next few years with a company in California..

Let me know how you enjoyed the books on my site..Thanks…Blue Skies and Happy Landings, Bettina

Wow! I’ve never met or heard of anyone being fascinated with airplanes. I am too! I love everything about them! I roll my window down and sun roof open everytime they fly over my head! Love the sound. I live right next to San Francisco Airport. It’s amazing. You’re awesome!

Marlene is truly one of the unsung heroes at our office. She is involved in many moving pieces big & small that are integral to our day-to-day business, both on our People Resources team and beyond. She always has time to help with a question I have or to give advice on my role. Days don’t function the same when she isn’t “in the house”…I am so glad I get to work with you every day Mar, you make me smile!
