We are proud to feature one of our exemplary Morguard team members, from our Canadian tandem of communities at The Maplewoods & The Forestwoods. Each and every one of our staff members has a story, and in this edition, Jacqueline Brown, our dedicated Leasing Administrator at 1477 & 1547 Mississauga Valley Blvd, near Toronto, shares both a personal and professional summary of what motivates and inspires her.
A Personal Story of Purpose and Participation
Jacqueline exemplifies all of our Morguard core values and service, as an individual, and as an employee. She enjoys cooking and watching old movies, especially on the BBC channel. As an active participant with the Antiguan Association local chapter, as well as Big Brothers & Sisters, Sick Kids Hospital, and the African Community Center, Jacqueline gives back to meaningful charities and appreciates community involvement.
Jacqueline has worked at Morguard for the last 3 years as a Leasing Administrator, helping showcase the many attributes The Maplewoods & The Forestwoods has to offer to prospective residents and families who are searching for a place to call home. Her enthusiasm and commit are evident on a daily basis. Her own words sum it up best:
“The core value I hold above everything is the fair and honest treatment of everyone. I believe everyone deserves an exceptional customer service experience that should not only reflect the company I represent but also myself. There are so many things I love about my job. I love meeting someone for the first time and sharing life experiences, whether good or bad, and treating them with the respect and compassion that all human beings deserve. I love working for Morguard and having the privilege of working with wonderful colleagues who have so many years of experience. I feel truly blessed and spoiled to have such great leadership from Maureen, Graham, and Susan, and they continue to be a motivation for me to excel. I have enjoyed contributing to events including our annual Tenant Appreciation Barbecue in August, and being the chairperson of our social committee along with Rodica, Darlene, David, and our exceptional group of volunteers whom have been so supportive!”
Our Morguard Property Featured Community Events
Jacqueline demonstrated the Morguard core value of giving back through the recent food drive she organized at her community. For this holiday food drive, Jacqueline and her team went door to door collecting food in December for the Mississauga Food Bank. She also organized a Santa Visit for the community in which 65 families enjoyed having their photos taken with Santa. Again, her own words tell the genuine story:
“The need for non-perishable food for local charitable organizations was in demand and we teamed up with the Mississauga Food Drive by posting flyers around the buildings and having drop boxes in our reception area to collect the food. We also went door to door with our wonderful staff and their families and we collected over 500lbs of food, which exceeded our targeted goal! We also hosted a Santa Claus Visit, and had an awesome time seeing the expressions of the children and parents as they had their pictures taken with the jolly man! We could never achieve the level of success that these events had if not for the great leadership, encouragement and positive attitude of Maureen, Graham, the leasing team, our superintendents and every volunteer. Together, what great things can we achieve!”
Making a Difference at Morguard
Jacqueline’s descriptions are moving examples of what gives her a sense of purpose at her position with Morguard, and in her own life. Working for an organization like Morguard gives each person an opportunity to be of service at their site and in the greater community, which is a good feeling.
