About June Choi

June Choi followed her father’s advice studying English in university to further her study abroad.  She came to Canada in 1972, having just married a Korean man, while she was studying Linguistics for her Master’s degree in Seoul. 

With her language skills, it was not too difficult for June to find a job within two months of landing in Toronto at the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce’s Head office – Mortgage Department, located downtown. It was a thrill for her to work instead of focusing on academic pursuits. She never went back to finish her degree, but pursued continuing studies at the University of Toronto, Seneca and Ryerson University for Business, Communications and Finance, as well as Computer-related courses – all funded by her employers. She enjoyed her employment at CIBC for 13 years, learning a great deal about Canadian living through her job activities, colleagues and superiors. 

When her marriage did not seem to be working, she left home and switched career paths, landing at a computer software company in 1985. This provided June with the opportunity to learn about completely different industries, from software such as Financial Suites (GL, AR, AP and Payroll), and Distribution and Manufacturing, to Transportation and Warehousing. This led June to two more job connections to a client company and then to the giant and renowned computer firm, Oracle, where June had worked for the last 22 years until her retirement this past Spring as a Senior Principal Consultant and Project Manager for Supply Chain and Business Management.
