Mary Travaglini started her Human Resource and Change Management career in the Canadian Forces, where she was posted to bases across Canada. As the first female member of three operational squadrons, she effectively built relationships in difficult environments and helped open Squadrons to gender diversification.
After the Canadian Forces, Mary expanded her Human Resource and Change Management career by working in the corporate world for companies such as Manulife Financial, Legg Mason Canada, and Royal & SunAlliance. She returned to Manulife on numerous occasions to work in Change Management in a variety of departments.
Her desire to serve led her back to a contract with the United Nations and Care Canada in the former Yugoslavia during the Civil War.
Mary’s most recent experience has been in the charitable sector where she served as Vice President, Administration & Human Resources, and eventually Interim President & CEO for The Healing Cycle Foundation.
Most recently, Mary has been working as a Change Management and Human Resource Consultant in the not-for-profit sector.
