From a young age, my heart and mind always knew what they wanted. I wanted to create. I've always liked being in front of people.  Talking. Writing. Being a part of something was very attractive to me. Creating and bringing a scheme to life. Now that to me is sexy.?

Instead I made choices that brought me to the insurance industry, not that I’m calling it unsexy or anything.  Shortly after graduating from university with a French literature degree, I took a job as a bilingual call centre representative (French ⁄ English) for a now defunct computer company. 8 months later, I responded to an ad in a Toronto newspaper for a call centre representative (again bilingual) at an insurance company. I ended up getting the job. That was 12 years ago.

Throughout my tenure in the insurance industry, I gained a lot of technical knowledge, met some brilliant and inspiring people who touched my life in a profound way and was able to move from call centre to underwriting to disability management.

That's when I finally made the decision to leave corporate and jumped passionately into the world of freelance writing.? That's my story. What's yours??
