Meet Erik, Our Employee of the Month
Erik joined our team in May of 2018. He is an incredible addition to our team. He is responsible for some of the most creative dishes on our menu. He takes pride in his work, often going above and beyond with things like individually wrapped, mouth-watering beaver tails. He is personally responsible for making every employee gain at least 5 pounds with his delicious baked goods!
Erik was the winner of employee of the month, not only due to his talent in the kitchen, but also for his incredible attitude. He is always friendly and smiling. His positive energy is contagious. He has a very impressive work history. He worked in the restaurant industry in the Byward market in Ottawa for 5 years. Two of those years were at the Heart and Crown as 1st cook.
Erik graduated with honours from the chef course at Algonquin College and worked at the Travel Lodge Hotel and later accepted a position at the University of Ottawa.
He really enjoys cooking, but branched out into the Retirement Industry because he finds it more fulfilling to engage with the residents.
“It’s much different being part of a community, where you work with the same people each day. There is a connection, that just doesn’t exist anywhere else. It’s a blessing to love what you do”
