I’m happy to welcome Lauren Kress and Sandy Arseneault to Coffee Shop HR. Lauren will be posting book reviews and Sandy joins our team of HR Writers.
Lauren Kress is a project manager and medical writer in the health services industry by day and a blogger and creative writer by night. She enjoys the challenges that come with combining science, health, marketing, creativity and management together and imagines herself running her own business in the future. In the meantime she has been traveling the world, learning new things and undertaking a Masters in cross-disciplinary Art and Design. After arriving back in her hometown (read: home city) of Sydney, Australia she is very excited to begin taking on more challenges that enable her to explore and develop her skills in business development, management and interpersonal relations. As the creator of http://outofink.org she seeks to uncover more about people and the world around them through sharing interviews, thoughts and creative endeavours that stem from life, travel, music and books.
Before obtaining a Bachelors Degree in Human Resources Management from Kwantlen University, Sandy graduated from BCIT with a Diploma in Financial Management. She also pursued a Diploma in Business Administration from Douglas College before falling in love with Human Resources.
Early in her career, Sandy worked as a(n) Receptionist, A/R Clerk, Office Manager and Accountant. Now, with 6 years of experience in the construction and manufacturing industry, Sandy is excited to pursue new challenges and industries while working towards future goals including her aspirations of being a highly regarded mentor for other HR Professionals and an inspiration to friends, colleagues and strangers.
