Academic Background

Bachelor of Arts (Honours): Political Studies, Queen’s University  


As a passionate advocate of the value of higher education to individuals and society, I am thrilled to be involved with a university boasting a stellar reputation both in terms of academic excellence and for producing outstanding people and citizens.

I have close to 10 years experience working successfully in development in both higher education and the arts. Most recently, I worked in senior development roles at the University of Waterloo (Faculty of Mathematics) and prior to that at Kitchener’s Centre In The Square theatre.

I am delighted to use my Laurier MBA to work closely with alumni and others to help continue and enhance the excellence of Laurier’s School of Business and Economics.
