Biography

I was born and spent the first 18 years of my life in Delhi, Ontario. Upon finishing high school, I set off for Belleville, Ontario where I attended Loyalist College in pursuit of a Print Journalism diploma. Much of my time was spent working on both the campus newspaper, The Pioneer, and student magazine On Your Own. After graduation, I completed a one-month internship with The Brantford Expositor, while pursuing my options for the future.

I ended up going to back to school, this time to Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, where I added an Honours BA in Communication Studies to my diploma. During my four years at Laurier, I had the amazing opportunity to experience many aspects of university life, ranging from Foot Patrol and Student Publications to Residence Life and Public Affairs.

When I graduated in October 2004, I knew I would have a hard time leavinguniversity, and when the opportunity to work at Laurier Brantford came up, I jumped at the chance. I was very excited to start the next phase of my life as the Administrative Assistant in the Dean's Office in January 2005. The opportunity to be part of a growing campus which is at the forefront of post-secondary educational partnerships was one that could not be turned down. This opportunity became even more incredible when in August I joined the Recruitment office, where I worked until March 2009.

In my current role as Associate Director, I am responsible for the outward appearance of the university, including media relations, our website, publications and various relations with stakeholders. I look forward to being a part of the Brantford community for years to come, during which time I hope to help the campus continue to grow and develop into a top choice among students, and a leading institution with a reputation for innovation and academic excellence.
