What’s your favorite WestJet destination?
London, UK. It’s where I am from and grew up and while Canada is now home, I love it that WestJet offers me a non-stop connection between my two homes. It has meant so many wonderful experiences for my family both here and in London. Although, if we’re looking for sun to replace the drizzle, we usually head to one of our Mexico destinations, I love Cabo in particular.
Describe WestJet in three words.
Human, Resilient, Innovative
Best travel tip?
For long haul, I love to have an eye mask and warm socks on hand, for short hops – just don’t pack more than you need, if you can travel with only carry-on luggage, it is liberating!
What are you most looking forward to in the next year?
I work with a team who love to foster our culture of being ‘a challenger’. It’s something I look forward to each week – the idea exchange, the thought partnership, challenging each-other and the status quo to build meaningful programs and products. I am also looking forward to travelling even more in 2022 – Edinburgh is on my list as I haven’t been in several years!
What does winning a WestJet Group Award mean to you?
Winning an award at WestJet really gave me a catalyst to reflect on the experience of developing the Elevation Lounge. We were inspired throughout the development journey, by the talented partners and WestJetters working collaboratively on the project, and I think that’s why we were able to deliver a meaningful lounge design. What I mean by that, is it really reflects the design starting points – our guest’s diverse needs during travel, the WestJet core values such as care and approachability, the Canadian land and culture within which its’ situated. So, the award has provided important reflection time on a long development experience. One of the key lessons I will take with me and share, is to keep working on what inspires you. I hope that our guests will continue to enjoy the space for many years to come.
