Participant Profile

Lee Reisch

Marketing Manager, TELUS

BA Communications, 2006

I worked my first job when I was 13, and since then I have always had a job during school and through summer breaks. I continued to work through University as well to the point where I was working a full-time job in addition to a full course load. By the end of University I was overwhelmed and under-rested. My experience has helped me realize the importance of finding a healthy work/life balance. Having the education to support a career that I enjoy compliments my personal time for family, friends and hobbies. It is important for me to maintain creative outlets in everything that I do. It keeps life fun and interesting. Having passion for what you do can turn the most mundane tasks into a rewarding experience if you have the right attitude!
