Department Spotlight: Ms. Jody Moon

2020 has been all about virtual. As such, we will be virtually profiling our administrative staff as they continue to work from home and keep our Department on track and meeting its strategic goals. Ms. Jody Moon is celebrating 16 years in the Department of Family Medicine this coming February. 

What do you most enjoy about your role in the Department?  

I really enjoy the diversity of my job – there are many aspects of HR and Finance and they are always changing with new research projects and new situations.  I’ve been here in Family Medicine for 16 years next month and I’m still learning new things.  But I also have a number of “maintenance” jobs I do every month that give me structure.  So it’s a good mix of challenge and familiarity.  And I work with great people which keeps the job fun. 

What’s been your most memorable experience while working in the Department?

There have been a lot of fun times so I’m not sure there is one single experience but going to the President’s house for my 25 year reception was really nice.  Moving into our new building was pretty memorable.  And our pot lucks are awesome!

What’s your greatest accomplishment?

I’ve had a number of accomplishments I’m proud of but more recently I’ve been trying to challenge myself physically– for my 50th  birthday we did a one day 50+km hike around London and this year I’ve signed up for 2021 km walk/run over the course of a year. 

What do you like to do outside of work, how you enjoy spending your time?

Anything to do with nature -I LOVE hiking, gardening and just generally being outside in the sun.
