Team Switchboard is made up of an incredible group of individuals who get it done. We’re really excited for you to meet our great team. This month, we’re featuring Karli, our project coordinator extraordinaire. When she’s not killing it for our clients, she can be found supporting the rest of the team or grabbing a well-deserved cup of coffee!
Tell us a little about yourself…
I recently graduated from The University of Calgary with a Bachelor of Commerce, majoring in Finance. I am passionate about numbers, learning, and being challenged. I look for mentorship and leadership in people that inspire me, like Kathleen Reid for example, Founder and Managing Director of Switchboard Public Relations.
My favourite place in the world is our family cottage on Georgian Bay, Ontario. I love my two fur babies, Milo and Xena. I am an avid skier and used to ski competitively. I am happiest outdoors, especially when the sun is shining. I am passionate about spreading kindness and making others around me feel loved and appreciated.
