I am excited for my first placement with Eleanor McMahon, MPP for Burlington. Although a recently elected member of the Legislature, she is no rookie to the political world. Ms. McMahon has a breadth of experience ranging from Press Secretary of Jean Chrétien, to founder and CEO of the Share the Road Cycling Coalition, to former Vice President with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce. As my MPP placement is the Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry, I am eager to pursue my interest in environmental policy. Furthermore, she is a member of the Standing Committee on General Government, and Standing Committee on the Legislative Assembly, so needless to say I hope to busy in her office. Her high energy and positive attitude will be a pleasure to work with everyday. For the cherry on top, Ms. McMahon is fluently bilingual from her time in France and work in Ottawa, so I am thrilled to be able to communicate in French in the office.
