A New Addition to the Team: Meet Rebecca

Learn a Bit More About Me

May 24, 2018

We would like to welcome Rebecca Thys to The Wooding Group family. Rebecca joins us from the non-profit sector and brings a wealth of experience in math and finance. We are so excited to have her with us. Also, her Excel spreadsheets are the GREATEST. To help you get to know her too, here are our top five facts about Rebecca:

She grew up on a farm:

“I have fond memories of helping out with the farm. I learned hard work at a young age as I was expected to help out with the feeding of animals and doing yard work. I also got to drive tractors.”

Her sister is an Olympian:

“My sister, Melissa, competed in the PyeongChang Olympic games this past year for Bobsledding. My family and I went and watched which was a cool experience. She placed 7th overall. I am extremely proud of my sister for all she has accomplished.”

Rebecca got married last year:

“I got married in Edmonton last year. We had a bigger wedding with 220 people. Coming from a small town, you end up inviting a lot of people. We then took our honeymoon to Europe. Venice was the highlight of the trip.”

 Her favourite hobby is snowboarding:

“Unfortunately, it is an expensive hobby, but I love it anyways. I try to go out to the mountains at least two or three times a season. It depends on how busy I am. Revelstoke, BC is my favourite place to snowboard. I have been doing it for 6 years now.”

Rebecca plays piano:

“I took lessons when I was younger. In fact, I was in kindergarten when I started. I like playing movie scores and random songs I find on YouTube. Since I started so young it was easier for me to learn. Some days I didn’t want to do it but now I’m glad I did.”
