Instead of waitressing like every other actor on the planet, I worked many years of temporary senior executive assistance in Toronto's financial district while juggling theatre and film gigs in that city. Pursuant to that, I ran my own freelance desktop publishing business for a few years from home before moving back to the Waterloo area.  I then assisted the Publisher of The Record, Guelph Mercury and Cambridge Reporter.  This was followed by three years as Marketing and Web Associate for an environmental technology firm in the north end of Waterloo. 

I joined Wilfrid Laurier in January of 2006 and have previously assisted both the Departments of Kinesiology and Physical Education and English and Film Studies.  I am thrilled to now be a permanent part of the Global Studies "family" and its sole full-time Academic Assistant. This department is growing and energetic and the people involved (faculty, CAS, TAs and students) are all wonderful spirits who care very deeply about this planet and its inhabitants. Come visit us and see what we're all about.
