We’re thrilled to welcome Keltie Gower to our team as senior manager! We recently had the opportunity to ask her a few questions, so that you all can get to know her!
What’s your favourite thing to do in your spare time?
I love tennis. I play and watch any chance I can get, sometimes even while at work. If anyone in the space wants to hit some balls let me know.
I also love to travel. I have been to six out of the seven continents, Antarctica is my last one — Brrrrr. Every summer, I try to go on one big trip to explore places I’ve never been to before. India is the next big one.
What are you most excited about in regards to your new role?
Interacting and learning from the members. Roundhouse is such a great community and I can’t wait to meet and collaborate with everyone.
How do you create work/life balance?
I don't have my email notifications on my phone. I think that we spend too much time looking at our phones. I also take vacations and make sure that I leave work at work when I am on vacation.
What is one of your biggest goals you are currently working towards?
I am currently working towards another Master's, this time with a sustainability focus. I love learning and sustainability, so why not put them together?
What is the best piece of feedback that you have received, and how did you learn from it?
That it is ok to fail, it is ok to talk about it and it is ok to admit how it made you feel. I learned that we all make mistakes and therefore need to spend more time talking about them,—that way when they happen, you don’t feel so bad.
What’s something not many people know about you?
That I grew up in a family of seven kids, six girls and one boy.
What is your mantra in life, or words to live by?
Shoot your shot.
