Team Member Spotlight / Carte Blanche October 12, 2018
Hi! I'm Marija Desnoyers (pronounced Mah-ree-uh Deh-noy-eh), and I'm the new human resources manager for Province Brands. When I first saw the posting online, I was immediately intrigued by the company. A beer made from cannabis?! I instantly remembered reading articles about this product before I even knew about Province, and I remembered thinking - how cool! A company in Canada is paving the way for the future of the edibles/cannabis market. I knew I wanted to be a part of something so revolutionary in an industry that is sure to blow up. I have always had the aspiration to have an impact on the world, and this seemed like just the opportunity to be a part of a company that is sure to do just that.
As for my life outside of work - I'm a Hamilton native and a fitness fanatic. I love being active, and frequent my local CrossFit gym where I love to do the WOD's and Olympic Lifting. I love challenging myself mentally and physically, so in the warmer months, I like to get muddy and do as many obstacle course races like Tough Mudder as possible! I love my road bike and getting outside as much as I can is also a favourite past-time. Other than that, I have a great appreciation for all sorts of music and art. I am so excited to be a part of this team and can't wait to see what the future has in store for us.
