About Sharon (she/her)

I am a daughter, sister, mother, auntie, grandmother, wife, ally, and friend. I have lived in Barrie since 1996 with my husband Rick. Our two daughters completed university and are now indpenendant and building their own careers and homes.

HONDA: My 30-year career at Honda of Canada Mfg. included roles progressing from Receptionist in 1991 to the Engine Plant Administration Leader in 2021. I specialized in employee relations and engagement, training and development, health and safety, business planning, budgeting, and cost analysis for a production plant with an annual budget exceeding $100M.

I learned many valuable lessons while working a Honda, the most important one being to ‘go to the spot’ and speak to the people involved. It is there, from them, where we will discover the root cause(s) and best solutions to our problems.
