What’s your favorite WestJet destination?
Hawaii, specifically the island of Oahu. When I'm not there, I miss it almost daily. I love the friendly people, the aloha vibes, the delicious food trucks, the tasty açai bowls, the mesmerizing sunsets, the countless beaches, and the adventurous hikes.
So far it has been St. Maarten. Beautiful beaches, great people, and amazing food!
Hawaii! I have been very lucky to have gone a few times!
What’s your favorite WestJet memory?
There are so many. But some of the highlights have been during the worst IROPs, when all of us band together and come out, even through the toughest of circumstances.
When working in YEG, we used to make the holiday dinners ourselves in a potluck style. It was always great to see what the other agents would bring in to share with the group. It was such a nice sense of family, since I wasn't able to spend holidays with my own, I spent it with my work family.
Definitely the WestJet Christmas miracle, where we asked guests what they wanted for Christmas and these gifts were given to them upon arrival. To this day we still get asked about this at Christmas time.
What are you most looking forward to in the next year?
I'm looking forward to further growth. I can't wait to spend more time with family and friends and to travel to new places.
Hopefully ramping back up and seeing new destinations!
Travelling again, being healthy, and getting to see and be with my family and friends!
What does winning a WestJet Group Award mean to you?
It has all been very unexpected. If I'm honest, I feel uncomfortable with the attention, but I'm honoured. What happened that day was a group effort and I'm happy we were in the right place, at the right time to help someone in need.
It has been a humbling experience. We just went out and did what we do every day - help guests to the best of our abilities. I am glad and proud that such a calm and strong management team were there to help.
Thank you to WestJet for recognizing us, as well as all the others who won awards.
Wow, what an honor it has been to receive this award along with my fellow WestJetters.
I’m still really overwhelmed with the fact that I won, and I share it with my entire team, because this award really is the true everyday spirit of all WestJetters. I am extremely proud and humbled by this.
