Staff Spotlight - Hedy Läets
Get to know one of our Member Service Representatives, Hedy Läets!
What is your role at Northern Birch Credit Union?
Member Service Representative
What do you like most about working at Northern Birch Credit Union?
It's like a piece of home in this new country. I moved to Canada quite recently and it has been so nice to have a workplace with Estonian music playing in the background, Estonian members coming in every day, and of course, getting to know my amazing co-workers.
What's your favourite restaurant or food?
Mom's cooking is still my favourite, but some amazing chicken wings and chocolate lava cake are also hard to resist.
Is there a community group or organization that's near and dear to your heart?
I arrived here in January 2021, during lockdown, so I haven't been very involved in the Estonian community in Toronto yet, but KESKUS International Estonian Centre is an impressive project! I'm thankful to be a part of it and excited to see it turning into a reality.
What's on your bucket list?
A lot of flying! I love travelling, and I'm always open to an adrenaline rush - skydiving, bungee jumping, rollercoaster, helicopter or a hot air balloon ride... yes, please!
How do you like to spend your weekends and free time?
Exploring the city, wandering around by the lake and in different parks, taking a lot of pictures and enjoying good food.
