Academic Background

BSc. Computing (Wilfrid Laurier University)


I first came to Laurier in August 1993 to begin my undergraduate degree in Computing and Computer Electronics. I graduated in 1998 then worked in Burlington and Missisisauga, until finally moving back to Waterloo to begin work in September 2000 as a Part-Time Faculty member teaching in Physics and Computer Science. In November 2000 I was hired full-time as a Lab Instructor and continued teaching part-time until January 2001.

In Fall 2004, I took over the position of Training and Education Coordinator for ITS while Melanie More-Duckworth was on maternity leave. The position was from August 2004 - April 2005.

As a student in my undergrad years, I have worked for the following departments:

  • CCS (now called Information Technology Services)
  • Alumni Affairs/Development

As well, I also did volunteer work for various areas in the WLU Students' Union:

  • WLUSU Marketing as a Graphic Designer, then Web Site Coordinator
  • Foot Patrol
  • Ice Breaker

I am currently a volunteer coach with Waterloo Minor Soccer U4-U5 age group (ending February 2016).

Formerly I have been:

  • Coach for Waterloo Minor Soccer U4-U5 - outdoor (Summer 2015)
  • Assistant Coach for Waterloo Minor Soccer U4-U5 age group - Indoor (Fall 2014)
  • A Running Instructor at The RunningRoom in Waterloo teaching a 10K Running Clinic
  • A relaxation volunteer at HopeSprings Cancer Support Centre
