Name: Mary-Anne Hart
Position: Human Resources Manager
How long have you worked for NewRoads? 17 years
WOW 17 years that is an incredible journey! What is your favourite part about working at NewRoads
There are so many great things about working at NewRoads, but overall one of the best parts is the ability that exists for associates to grow within the company. NewRoads truly believes in developing people both personally and professionally and promoting from within. It’s great to work for an organiz
tion that encourages and offers career development opportunities. I’m a good example of this as I originally started out with NewRoads as a Financial Services Manager.
I also consider myself very fortunate to go into work each day and see many of the people that I have created lifelong friendships with. I have met some of my best friends at NewRoads.
Can you share something unique about yourself that we should know?
I thrive on staying busy. My role with NewRoads and my life as a mom of three already keeps me busy enough, however, I still make it a priority to make time for myself with daily workouts and/or walks and things that help nourish my own wellbeing. I am an all around better person when I make sure to carve out some time for self care.
It’s Saturday night & you can invite three people in the world (dead or alive) to dinner, who would they be?
I would love to have dinner with Oprah, because she is an inspiration and role model. I would also love to have dinner with my favorite Peloton instructor - Cody Rigsby. He motivates and makes me laugh! If it was possible, I would also like to have dinner with my teenage self. I like the idea of being able to look back and talk to myself as a teenager. How great it would be if we could give our younger selves guidance/advice about not sweating the small stuff that didn't matter and the importance of trusting ourselves and our inner voice.
Do you have a favourite quotation at the moment?
“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style” - Maya Angelou
What book are you currently reading?
