Born and raised in Nanaimo, I am happy to call this city my home. I have been fortunate to work for the GAIN Group since 2013, when I began working as a Receptionist shortly after graduating university. Over the years, I have used my background in tourism, business, and customer service to assist clients at Mercedes-Benz Nanaimo and Subaru of Nanaimo as Receptionist and Sales Administrator respectfully. I transitioned into Executive Assistant in 2015 where I work more behind the scenes, assisting our General Manager to maintain our HR needs, our facilities, and our processes while also training and supporting our Administrative staff. I hope to see you in our dealership soon where I will work to help make your experience a great one! Also, be sure to ask for me to pour your favourite cup of coffee… I am known as our resident “barista”!

I started working in the Automobile industry as a temporary job and I'm still here after almost 30 years.

I've had the pleasure of working for the GAIN Group for the last 5 years. First with their German premium brands in Victoria and now In Nanaimo. I bought my first premium brand BMW shortly after I entered the car business . From then on German premium brands became my car of choice with my last one being a Mercedes-Benz. I truly believe we offer the best luxury automobiles available and it is a pleasure to work for a company that puts their customers first and believes in first class service for their clients from beginning to end. I look forward to making many new friends and helping them with the buying process as their Client delivery specialist.

Very happy to be part of the team!

The teams at all the dealerships are great to work with, as are my fellow shuttle drivers, Andre and Jim.
