Academic Background

MES (Planning), University of Waterloo (1999)
BA (Biology and Geography), Wilfrid Laurier University (1993)


I am a proud alumnus of WLU, having obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology and Geography from Laurier in 1993. I have been privileged to hold a number of positions at Laurier including as a Teaching Assistant, Research Assistant, Student Ambassador, Liaison Officer, Lab Instructor, and since 2009, as a Community Service-Learning (CSL) Co-ordinator.

Working with the Laurier Centre for Community Service-Learning (LCCSL) as a CSL co-ordinator has been a thrill. I have really enjoyed collaborating with faculty, students and community partners and am excited about Laurier's continued commitment to building relationships between our institution and the broader community.  I am happy to play a role in enhancing the student experience, supporting faculty, and building community, by helping to coordinate quality university-community relationships.
