Sydney Sackett

Executive Assistant

Born in Panama to American parents, Sydney grew up between Puvirnituq and Montreal, Quebec.  With a degree in Creative Writing from Concordia University, she spent her practical years working across the Canadian Arctic and later in Ottawa as a freelance and then full-time corporate publications writer.

In 2006, Sydney followed her Ottawan husband to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, where she worked in progressively senior office management and business support roles with Kearney and Boston Consulting Group, providing C-Suite and corporate secretarial assistance while leading large, diverse admin teams.

When she is not studying for chartered secretary certification, Sydney can be found trying to keep up with her husband’s skiing and cycling enthusiasm or honing her novice gardening skills.
