About the Author

Passionate about lifelong learning and inspiring others to achieve their best potential, Angela writes, blogs and speaks on a variety of leadership, professional development and personal growth topics. Keynote and conference speeches have included “Creating a Mentally Healthy Workplace” (Women in Leadership Making a Difference conference, Edmonton AB) and “Step Up – Create an Ownership Culture” (CHRO Summit, Vancouver BC).  Angela is also an occasional guest lecturer at Mount Royal University.

Angela speaks English and Greek fluently, French well enough to converse with a toddler, and Spanish and Italian well enough to ask for directions.  She was the founder and organizer for 10 years of the ICBC Women’s Network, and a co-founder of the official fan club of a CFL football team.  Her secret skill is the ability to turn a cartwheel wearing a business suit.

Drawing on her years as a Human Resources executive, “It Depends: Employee Relations Case Studies for Human Resources Professionals and Students” is Angela’s first book.  She is currently writing a novel, her first work of fiction, and is conducting research for a book investigating bullying within church congregations.
Angela has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the University of British Columbia, a Diploma in Adult Education from Vancouver Community College, and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from Royal Roads University.  Originally from Windsor, Ontario, she lives in Calgary, Alberta with her family.
