Jillian has been working with ImageX Media since June 2011. She runs the show when it comes to Human Resources — recruitment, compensation, learning and development and more! Jillian has 5 years of HR experience. She has spent most of her career in government and public sector. In early 2011, she opted out of the corporate world and now spends her days working with leaders to become better leaders, while working with employees to become their best selves.
Jillian graduated from the University of Lethbridge with a Bachelor of Management in HR and Social Responsibility. She also has her ‘Canadian Human Resources Professional’ (CHRP) designation. In 2010, Jillian was the recipient of both the Human Resources Institute of Alberta’s & Human Resources Association of Calgary’s Rising Star Award. The award is given to a HR professional who shows great promise as a future leader in the HR community.
Jillian’s other life takes place in the community. She works with organizations associated with the UN’s Millennium Development Goals, including Junior Chamber International — and local educational institutions such as Simon Fraser University and the University of British Columbia. Her work in the non-profit community includes educating various age groups on topics such as: gender equality, work-life balance, entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and the opportunity to be involved in the global community.
In addition to working at IXM, Jillian works with a few other companies in a similar capacity.

What is on your travel ‘wish list’:
Croatia. It oozes with culture, history and beauty.
