When I joined McCain Foods in 2011, I would never have guessed that my McCain journey would take me to the other side of the world and back.

Having joined the company as Senior Finance Manager in Chicago, USA, I was presented with an incredible opportunity to develop my career in finance. This involved a move to Tokyo, Japan, where I held the position of Finance Director.

Tokyo became my home. With support from the McCain team, I enjoyed learning about the local culture while navigating a challenging new job.

I have recently moved back to North America to take up the role of VP of Finance for McCain Foods Canada, based in Toronto. In this new role, I work in partnership with the Canadian Leadership Team, providing financial and analytical leadership to drive growth and key strategic initiatives.

At McCain, you are encouraged to be the best that you can be, and I will always be grateful for the personal development opportunities that have been possible through my experiences in the US, Japan and now Canada.
