Hi and how are you? Good Day! My ancestry is English, Italian, and Scottish. I was born in Victoria and grew up in Sooke (T’Souke/Soke), BC. My relatives landed in these territories many generations ago and I feel grateful to have made our home here on Vancouver Island.
My educational path really started and grew at the College with beginning taking the Career and College Skills 100 Program where I then moved onto Self-Paced Academic Upgrading (Adult Basic Education, ABE). Next, I studied and graduated with a Certificate in Office Administration and later returned to study Business Administration and graduated with a Marketing Diploma.
Pursuing post-secondary studies changed my life journey. It brought me to working at various positions from non-profit, government, small to larger sized companies in Canada, Australia (for just over five years), and England (on a Working Holiday Visa). I am honored to be a part of Camosun College as an alumni and as a term employee [(again) (this year starting 2018)]. The College has always felt like home to me and it is a great place to be with a limitless amount of support for students and staff.
I look forward to what the future has in store and the exciting times ahead. Stop by for a chat anytime.
