REM Staff Bio - Jillian McBurney

At Work

Role at REM: 

Customer support.  I train customers and then provide continued support for our software, WebWiz@rd.  I am also the first point of contact for general email, website and hosting questions.

 

Education: 

Mohawk College – the 3 year Applied Music program. The trumpet was my instrument of choice.

 

Previous Lines of Work: 

How far back do I go?  Babysitting (which I couldn’t stand), Retail (which I tolerated), Landscaping (which I loved), self-employed wedding photographer (which I found very rewarding), REM Support (which I thoroughly enjoy).

 

Something That Makes Me Smile at Work: 

The quirky nature of my co-workers.

 

One of the Things I Find Fascinating: 

The Universe.  How do astronomers know it is never ending?  How can that be proven?

 

Favourite

I don’t watch a lot of TV but I do like Hell’s Kitchen.
 

Musical Artists:

Time of Day: 

Depends on the time of year, but mostly, the morning.

Spring
 

Places in the World: 

My home, my family’s homes and my friend’s homes – anywhere I’m having good conversation.


Recreational Activities/Hobbies: Scrapbooking, walking, playing board games and cards.
 

Sport:

I don’t follow sports and I’m not part of a team either but I think that swimming laps is really cool.

I don't have one.

“Mommy, I love you.” 

 

Life Motto:

Try to be empathetic but do not be taken advantage of.

 

My Hero:

One of the Things I Find Fascinating:  

The Universe.  How do astronomers know it is never ending?  How can that be proven?

 

Most People Don’t Know This About Me:  I once said, “I like animals more than I like humans.”  I sometimes still feel that way!
