As the Beacon of Happiness- yes, that is her real job title - Colleen is the curator of Gigasavvy’ company culture. Colleen’s passion is pushing beyond culture as a corporate buzzword, and creating a space where team members feel personally appreciated and seen.
The average day in the life of the Beacon of Happiness ranges from daily greetings for everyone who walks in the door, to planning, organizing, and coordinating all office activities and events while carrying out personalized, random acts of happiness for the team. There is no task too large, or too small. Through high-levels of detail, Colleen finds a way to intuitively customize each team member’s experience so they can be supported in doing their best at what they do.
Outside of her role at Gigasavvy, Colleen finds a way to funnel her creative talents through multiple mediums. She volunteers full-time as the Kids Ministry Director at Hillsong OC, and is an alumna of the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) in which she has achieved two degrees, that which consistently highlight both her design and business management skills. In addition, Colleen is two-time national figure skating champion and is still professionally active in the sport today for commercials and special performances, not to mention her “hobby” as a professional acrobat as well. Colleen jokes and says, “I don’t like to sleep because I love life too much!” Wherever she goes, it is her passion to encourage, influence, and empower others. She believes if that is all she accomplishes in life, then she lived rich.
