Learn more about Claudine, her bionic leg and how she got it:
What motivates you to get up and go to work?
Presenting our products and their benefits to Quebec companies is my motivation. Matting is a technique very little known in Quebec, and having the chance to present an ecological, effective and brilliant product is a source of motivation in itself.
What has been your favourite project so far?
I had the chance to learn new things on every project we’ve had in Quebec since I came onboard, and I would say each was a favourite in its own particular way.
What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I have three steel plates and several screws in the right ankle as a result of a motocross miscalculation. I did motocross until having my first child, and now I find the same adrenaline in mountain biking.
What would you like to ask our CEO?
What have been the biggest challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Who’s your favourite team and why?
I don’t really watch sports on TV – if I do, I like to watch motocross races or extreme sports.
How do you define success?
There is no success unless you are happy. To me, success is finding the balance between personal & professional aspects of your life.
Say hi to Claudine next time you stop by the Quebec office!
