What have I been up to in the past 6 months…Well, I accomplished one of my long-time life goals. Nick and I moved to Vancouver!
We’d promised ourselves we’d start looking for the right opportunity to move approaching the end of 2017 but life has a funny way of happening sometimes. A new job opportunity presented itself to me at the end of February and we had to very quickly pack up and move out west. I was extremely sad to leave California Innovations – those of you who talk to me frequently will know that I really loved my job and the people I worked with there. I can only hope to find such a great work environment as I move forward in my career.
I’m now working at Native Shoes as a Product Developer. I’m so excited to be working in footwear again, and even more excited to be working with one of my all-time favourite colleagues again, back from my Power Athletics days. Native is a fairly young company compared to what I’m used to working in so it’s been fun and interesting helping to implement some of the processes and organizational tools I’ve found useful in the past. I’ve survived my first development back to China and my first brand meeting with Native. I can’t wait to see what else this new job (and city) brings…And I can’t wait to share my adventures too!
