Nicole Balesdent started in the lighting industry fourteen years ago as reception for William F. White Ltd. in Vancouver. After eight months on the phones, she was offered the inside sales co-ordinator position. Knowing nothing about lighting she accepted the position and started to learn. She enjoyed the fast paced, challenging environment handling everything from phone and counter sales, shipping and receiving, invoicing and purchasing. Nicole has now been with the Christie Lites Sales sales team for over six years. Her favorite thing about her job is her clients. She has found a perfect balance at Christie and feels lucky to be doing a job she loves.
