I am passionate about many things - heritage architecture, environment, local history and politics - just to name a few. I have been working as a Manager in Student Affairs since 2011, after serving in a similar capacity for many years at McMaster University. I love this university and the City of Guelph and have raised my four kids one block from the Speed River.
I am looking forward to my L4C placement in the fall. My mandate will involve marketing and website development for two colleges in Arusha.
