the balance that worked for me is what got me to where I am.”


That past-pregnant working grad student is currently a career mom who struggles, as many mothers with careers outside home do, to find balance for herself and also for her children. “When I’m out of the office, I like to balance my time with family; everybody does it differently. I like to get outside and be active with my kids.” That presents another challenge; her children are involved in winter indoor sports. “First I am a big hockey fan and go catch a Montreal Canadians game almost weekly. My kids are always on the ice as well, my daughter figure skates and my son plays hockey… I actually look forward to his games more than NHL games!” (That’s high praise for a place where Hockey Night in Canada is a must.)


Bagel Fuel


That mom-career balance is increasingly hard. Currency rates, weakening economies, slower than expected growth, and falling oil prices have impacted Pratt & Whitney Canada’s international sales. “Some customers are struggling and some decisions to purchase have been delayed,” explains Makris. “That has definitely had a big impact across all market segments.” Somewhat surprisingly, Pratt & Whitney Canada has seen this downturn as an opportunity. “We are looking at total innovation and how we can take things to the next level. It seems counterintuitive, but in today’s challenged or softer market, our workload (at Pratt & Whitney Canada) ramps up. We’re busier than ever. My day is split between mentoring and coaching people, securing future growth and responding to customer proposals, which are going really well right now. I’m focused on interacting with our customers to integrate their needs with the next-gen aircraft the OEMS are designing. Next-gen doesn’t mean five or more years out, it means what does the customer need that we aren’t providing now. I oversee very strong teams working on our next engines.” Makris sees projected increases in U.S. military budgets as another opportunity for Pratt & Whitney Canada. “My team is working very closely with our military division, ensuring we are there as needs arise.”


Makris’ full days start early. “I get up at 5:00 and leave home at 6:15. I admit I eat my bagel in the car on the way to work, but I don’t feel bad about that because people in the cars next to me do the same thing.” Lest that seems like a lot of Canadians consuming carbs in cars, Makris uses what might be carb overload for others to fuel a healthy habit for herself. She explains, “I love to run, and put my earphones on—I almost said‚ Walkman, but nobody knows what that


is anymore!—and create my own private space. It’s therapeutic.”


Since the bye-gone Walkman era, Makris has been creating a healthy space for herself and the corporate teams she has led along the way. It’s been a challenging, passionate, and successsful run.
