And, no matter what she learns, she makes it a point to teach her colleagues. Jennifer quickly became the go-to person for getting things done right, a reputation that earned her the CIS Employee Recognition Award for her hard work, knowledge and contributions to the business last fall.
Her positive outlook and reservoir of ideas also come in handy in her role as a member of the site’s social committee. Her most recent contribution was a tasty chili cook-off that brought colleagues from every department together for a delicious competition.
When she is not shipping products or helping plan employee engagement events, Jennifer spends most of her spare time with her sister and nephew. Another benefit, adds Jennifer, of her career change. Feeling supported to put family first while also growing in her professional life is something Jennifer says has been very rewarding. And, as the only woman who works in the warehouse, she said she is proud to be on the ground and showing people that anyone can be successful in the trades.
“I am proud of everything I do here,” Jennifer shared. “The people and the environment we all work together to create is incredible. Mining is about community, and I truly feel at home.”
