Michele Maurice is originally from Bedford, QC, a little town in the Eastern Townships (about an hour SE of Montreal). She grew up with 2 older sisters in a fully bilingual family. Michele is fluent in French and English and is looking into learning a third language. She learned English at approximately 5 years old when she met her best friend Tammy. Tammy didn’t speak any French and Michele didn’t speak any English, but they managed to understand what the other was saying. Michele has lived in many cities in Canada such as Montreal, Brampton, Mississauga, Ottawa and Calgary. Michele’s career began in reception and admin assistance and then moved onto IT as an IT coordinator, and since 1998, she has been in Human Resources. Michele has always liked to help other people and believes she has selected a career path that now gives her that opportunity.
