I am a writer in the Department of Communications and Public Affairs at the University of Guelph. That's also my alma mater, where I studied wildlife biology. I write a variety of stories for publications intended to tell the world about U of G research and teaching. I also write a weekly arts and culture column and occasional feature stories for the Guelph Mercury daily newspaper.
On my first-ever assignment with Leave for Change, I am spending four weeks this summer in southern Vietnam as a marketing communications specialist with Ho Chi Minh City College of Economics. My mandate runs from July 13 to Aug. 9.
I plan to share my trip through postings here and through my weekly newspaper column in Guelph.
