Welcome to our new HR Assistant Manager

We would like to welcome Lygia Siqueira to the Department. Lygia starts this week and will be replacing Hannah Sauve. 

Lygia’s previous job was as a Faculty Hires and Promotions Coordinator for the Department of Medicine, where she was responsible to manage the faculty recruitment, appointment, reappointments, promotions and tenure process and to provide support to the faculty members in the largest department within the Faculty of Medicine. Her past experience mostly involved administration and HR roles in the private sector and at UBC. Lygia joined UBC in 2020 and was with the DoM since then. She completed her undergraduate degree at Fatec in Sao Paulo, Brazil with a major in Business Administration, then moved to Canada to pursue a Human Resources Certification Program and graduated at BCIT in 2017. Outside of her professional pursuits, Lygia enjoys exploring nature going hiking, camping, paddleboarding, and finding new swimming spots around beautiful BC. She is excited to join the OBGYN team and is looking forward to meeting and collaborating with everyone.
