Consultant Spotlight: Junyee Wang
Moving along with our Consultant Spotlight Series, this week we’re jumping into the life of Junyee Wang, our Consulting Manager. Junyee’s knowledge and experience in ERP consulting runs deep and she’s always willing to lend a helping hand. Her empathetic, calm and patient personality combined with her confidence and insightfulness makes her an asset to our team. On top of her job and life as a mother of three, find out what else kept her busy during lockdown...
If you weren't a consultant, what job would you want to do?
Hmm.. hard to pick just one - Architect/Building Science, Biotech or Genetics, Orchard/Berry or Alpaca Farmer. ✌🏼
What was your very first job?
Fast Food, Hostess.
Do you have a hidden talent?
Drawing and pottery. It allows me to meditate and focus on the present moment. I see the world through contrasts of light/dark and textures/patterns and these two creative outlets bring me back to the tactical. 🎨
What new skill or hobby did you pick up during the pandemic lockdown?
Dog breeding! Breeding our dog, Emma (after chickens and rabbits), was the highlight of the pandemic. She had 8 puppies that we were able to place with loving families, which brings us such joy. We are grateful that our family was able to enrich other families with the unconditional love that a dog can provide, especially during this uncertain time. 🐕
What do you wish you knew more about?
Gardening. It’s so fulfilling to see your garden grow. I always make sure to set thyme aside for gardening. 🌷
Building IKEA furniture - torture or enjoyable?!
I don’t mind doing it to get the job done.
If you could go back in time, which class in high school do you wish you paid more attention in?
Design and Drafting.
What's the most memorable place you've travelled to?
Driving through Canada and the US from Toronto to Vancouver and back. 🚗
What's your best childhood memory?
Vancouver - 1986 World Fair fireworks with my family. We stood in the middle of Main Street and they were literally above our heads. 🎆
Do you have an irrational fear?
Dead birds. 😯
What's your ideal way to start the day?
Quiet time for myself.
What's the best part about working from home?
Being able to walk my dog when I need a break.
What's your favourite part of the ERP implementation process?
Uncovering needs and finding solutions. And also, training.
What is the most interesting business you've worked with as a consultant?
Cookie/cracker and ice cream companies. Seeing their products in the stores and knowing that we are a part of putting smiles on faces. 🍪
What is something you enjoy about working with the Umbrella Consulting team?
The support from the team and opportunities to work on interesting projects with our amazing customers. 🙌🏼
