Her Role at Osgoode Properties:
“I think my actual title is ‘Residential Portfolio Administrator’. I report to the Vice-President of Residential Properties at Osgoode Properties. I would say that 40% of my job is reporting to the VPM, another 40% of my job is IT and software support – our Yardi database specifically, and the other 20% is special projects. Yardi is the software we use to track all of our tenant and accounting data.”
“On 04-April 1st I celebrated 15 years with Osgoode Properties! I started working in this industry by an absolute fluke. I have an Economics degree and I graduated university with no real idea of what I wanted to do. I took a temporary job here in the Accounting Department doing accounts receivables, and decided I really didn’t want to be an Accountant. I switched to the Operations department, and the rest is history. I love it here!”
Best part of my day:
“Never knowing what will come across my desk. Everyday something new happens, newchallenges arrive and I get to try to fix them.”
Down time with Kate and her Family:
“I like to go to the gym and play Ultimate Frisbee. I spend a lot of time with my family; I have two kids – an 8 year old and a 6 year old. They are pretty awesome! We are a very active family – lots of sports and hobbies. I’ve been married for 11 years now, and he is still the best.”
Share a Life Lesson:
“Just keep it simple and be happy with what you have!”
What would you tell a younger version of yourself that you now know about life?
“You need to figure out how to recognize when you’re happy and appreciate it.”
Congrats Kate on your 15 years with Osgoode Properties, here’s to 15 more!
