This profile is part of a series in support of Take Our Kids to Work Day on November 3, 2021. Launched in 1994, Take Our Kids to Work Day is the most recognized career exploration event in Canada. With the pandemic continuing to change how students learn, the 27th annual Take Our Kids to Work Day presented by RBC Future Launch will be back with a virtually delivered look at the world of work for Grade 9 students across Canada.
 
This year’s theme – You Belong Here! – will expose young minds, as they enter their first year of high school, to a wide range of careers reflecting the full diversity of students, interests and the future world of work.

Job title:

Customer Success Manager, Digital Surgery

In high school I would have been voted most likely to:

vanish and resurface in 10 years

The skills I rely on most in my role:

Collaboration

Q: What advice would you give someone hoping to have a career at a healthcare organization and how would you recommend finding the right specialty?

I have found that internships really give you a risk-free chance to understand what you like and what you don’t. Try before you buy!

Q: What are some pros and cons regarding your chosen field?

I love solving complex challenges across healthcare, but it does mean I spend 8+ hours a day on a desk. Consider what lifestyle you want to live.
