Kari Tanaka, Assistant Manager - Bookstore

I work in the University Bookstore and have been on campus for almost ten years.

The Element Teams that I am working on are:

1. Statement of Intent
2. An Expanded Orientation Program
3. Defining Roles, Expectations, and Development Opportunities
4. The Engagement Survey
5. Website Development

I am very excited to be a part of this committee as the People Plan strives to highlight the diversity and dynamic nature of University of Lethbridge employees as a collective unit. This diversity, and the breadth of skill sets, knowledge and perspectives that comes along with it, is one of the most rewarding aspects of being an employee of the University of Lethbridge! It is truly a privilege to have the opportunity to collaborate, share, and learn alongside fellow committee members, as well as the campus community as a whole, as we navigate this project together.

My favourite things to do outside of work are any activities that will put a smile on my kids’ faces. Whether it is planning their dream vacation to Disney World, or simply double-bouncing them on the trampoline, when they laugh, I laugh! I am also a voracious reader and a bit of a food snob. So, if anyone is in the mood to talk about a great book or a great meal, you know where to find me!
