After studying mechanical engineering at Montréal's École de technologie supérieure (ETS) and obtaining her engineering degree, Annik worked for an industrial engineering consulting firm as a project manager for four years, during which time she optimized work procedures and manufacturing processes for various clients.

Through this position, she got to know KPMG employees and discovered a work environment and corporate culture that fit her values and aspirations.
In early 2005, Annik accepted a permanent position as Montréal Scheduling Coordinator within KPMG's Audit practice - a major career change. Her solid grounding in engineering allowed her to quickly propose and make changes to the process in place. Barely seven months after taking up her duties, Annik was offered a Human Resources Administrator position, which she eagerly accepted; she took part in a variety of HR projects, particularly in the area of campus recruiting. In 2007, she accepted a new position entirely focused in this area as head of Campus Recruiting for the Montréal office and a member of the National Campus Recruiting team.
