    Senior Industrial Recruiter

    Michelle is the Senior Industrial Recruiter at Express Employment Coquitlam and has been with Express since 2011. Through her years as an Industrial Recruiter, there isn't anything that Michelle hasn't seen. She understands the difficulties that can face our local clients and cares for the livelihood of each job seeker that she meets.

    She currently oversees the Light Industrial & Skilled Trades departments.

    "I love that I work at a place where I can truly help people. When I have interviewed someone, listened to their needs, and find them the right job so they can support themselves and their families, that's what hits home for me and makes all the tough parts of the job worth it."

    When Michelle  isn't finding local jobseekers their own dream jobs, she enjoys spending time with her family & playing soccer.

    Theresa Chang

    Front Office Coordinator

    Theresa has been our Front Office Coordinator since 2019 and is most likely the first voice you will hear when you call our office. She currently oversees the onboarding, payroll & associate support.

    Each day she manages the recruitment process, helps job seekers with their applications, conducts payroll and assists our busy team & associates, in any way possible. Without Theresa's strong organizational skills and presence at the front, the office would not run as smoothly as it does.
