Role with Goodbye Graffiti™: General Manager Vancouver & Sea to Sky

What did you do before Goodbye Graffiti™: Prior to coming on board with Goodbye Graffiti I was a Human Resources Manager for one of the largest General Motors Dealerships in Ontario.

What are your strengths as a Goodbye Graffiti™ team member: I try and create a framework for people in different functional disciplines to work together effectively towards a common goal. My unwavering commitment to Customer Service and realistically high standards are what makes me a strong leader at Goodbye Graffiti. `

The best part of your role with Goodbye Graffiti™:  I love working as part of a team with many moving parts that must flow together seamlessly in order to be successful. Motivating people to reach a common goal is exhilarating for me and something I take a lot of pride in. Our team at the Vancouver office is super tight-knit and it is a pleasure working with each and everyone in such a vibrant community.  As a fully trained and certified lift vehicle operator, I also love driving some of the big articulating boom lifts we utilize to safely remove large pieces of graffiti from precarious places.

The Most challenging part of your role with Goodbye Graffiti™: Scheduling around the weather!

What is the most interesting piece of graffiti you have ever seen:  Muralists are incredibly inspiring with their larger than life creations. I am particularly fond of cultural or political pieces that make you stop and think about an idea, perhaps step outside of your world view and see a new perspective. Richard Tetrault is an amazing Visual Artist, Muralist here in Vancouver and his amazing cultural work can be seen all over the city.  iHeart and Banksy also come to mind.
