Feature Friday: Saundra Morin
It's Friday and you know what that means - it's time to feature another one of our amazing staff members! Today, we're going to be hearing from the lovely Saundra Morin, who is a part-timer at our Moncton location. We don't know what we'd do without all her helps, especially when it comes to putting some creativity into our chalkboards - she is a very talented woman and we're so happy to be sharing a bit about her today.
Tell us a bit about yourself.
Hi, my name is Saundra Morin and I grew up in Moncton, New Brunswick. After graduating from university I decided to stay here and build my home; close to my family and the ocean.
I work full-time for a not-for-profit health care organization where I have the privilege of leading teams and projects to meet key program deliverables, and ultimately, to provide health care coverage to New Brunswickers. On the weekends I get to work with an awesome team of creative, hardworking women at My Home Mercantile.
For fun I like to hang out with my fur babies (or any fur friends really), workout, watch the Jays, and get a little too competitive playing games with my friends and family – like any games – crib, dice, cards, darts, shuffleboard, barrel of monkeys, Catan, etc. I’m also into embroidery these days.
Where is the coolest place you've ever visited?
I’ve been able to travel to a lot of incredible places so far in my life – from Paris and Rome to New York City, but some of the coolest places I’ve visited are here at home in Canada. A difficult toss-up between the Rocky Mountains/Lake Louise and Newfoundland.
Who always makes you laugh?
My cousin Jenn. She tells the best stories (if only a little exaggerated) and any time we get together there is sure to be a least one fit of laughter – the kind where you are laughing so hard no one is making a sound.
What is something awesome that happened to you this week?
I got to meet Henry. He’s my dear friend’s son who was born May 12th and he is absolutely perfect.
What is your favourite book and why?
Most recently I fell in love with the book The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur. It is a beautiful collection of poetry about femininity, love, loss, and healing. Her work is relatable (you know that connected feeling you get when you read something that perfectly captures how you’ve felt before) and ultimately leaves you feeling inspired and optimistic – and who couldn’t use more of that.
