An alumni of Northern Alberta Institute of Technonlogy’s (NAIT) Business Administration program and Athabasca University’s Human Resources and Labour Relations program, Kimberlea is the creator of ATB Financial’s successful “ATB 101” program – their first enterprise wide post-secondary recruitment strategy and student development program. As a published writer and experienced public speaker, she has held a variety of progressively senior HR positions and is an international influencer to the talent community – she has been invited to share her ideas at conferences and learning events for transformative companies such as LinkedIn, Glassdoor, Human Resources Professional Association (HRPA), MediaCorp and more.

It’s been her signature method of recruitment and talent development to ask people to share their story, their way in order to find the work that fits their lives and betters the lives of others.

She believes that relentless innovation, transparency and genuine connections will transform global business practices for the better.
