how does your role elevate lululemon?
Being in a tech support role, we have the opportunity to speak with many many store educators and Store Support Centre employees on a daily basis. By making sure issues are solved and/or escalated in a timely manner, it elevates the ability of our team members to do their jobs more efficiently. The fantastic relationship between the business and IT support at lululemon helps to elevate the company as a whole.
We are a local, grassroots company that cares about the communities in which their stores are located. Most recently I came from a Western Canadian grocery company that had its start in New Westminster, and have always enjoyed the sense of pride and accomplishment that comes with working local. lululemon really gets it when it comes to staying true to core values and goals. We are also a growing company with opportunity abound, and for those motivated individuals (it’s not hard to get, and stay motivated in such a great company) the world is your oyster.

coolest thing about being a tech support specialist?
Probably has to be the daily interaction with so many different people, and the fact that everyone accepts and realizes the importance of having an educated and motivated IT department. Also, can’t forget the toys. Being in this role you get to experience a lot of the cutting edge technology out there, as well as test and implement new technologies to help the support process, and ultimately the business become more efficient.
what is your favorite way to sweat?
I play hockey year round, as well as soccer whenever I get the opportunity. The combination of physical exertion mixed with mental competition is a great way to relieve stress and stay in shape. I’ve played hockey since I was a kid, so I guess I’ll embarrass myself a little bit and include an old hockey picture of me as a wee laddie.
what are you most passionate about?
Definitely friends and family – without them, what is life? Right? Totally cheesy, but it’s the truth.
