Senior Project Manager - Social Innovation
Gem is an early professional on the project management stream with experience in various environments, budgets, and sizes. Having worked on one of the largest client projects in North America at IBM, finding the equilibrium between client, team, and project needs on a daily basis had proven to be a pivotal definer/developer for both her professional and personal skill sets.
Being originally from the Bahamas, she originally moved to Nova Scotia as an international student at Sobey School of Business at Saint Mary's University. Now that she has made Canada home, through experiences in work environments and National Pan-Hellenic Council organizations, she has realized her love and appreciation of institutions that actively seek to enhance diversity and be pillars of action in equality with cultural disparity awareness.
Within the realm of project management (and each day), Gem sees the challenges to adapt and remember to not be "too attached to [her] own myopia", because just because she's "found a way to do things, doesn't mean it's the [only] way to do things" (S. K. Brown).
