Biography

Background

After high school I ventured to the University of Guelph for a Bachelor of Science.  While I initially wanted to write my MCATS and apply to be a veterinarian, my volunteer work with multiple vets changed my career goals.  My other dream had always been teaching, so after completing my BSc it was off to teacher’s college.  After Brock, I accepted a Customer Service position with Union Gas for two years.  While this opportunity was a great learning experience and financially rewarding, it wasn't a position I saw long-term.  I happened to meet an employee of Laurier Brantford and she suggested I apply for a new opportunity at Service Laurier Brantford.  I did and the rest is history.

As a Service Laurier Brantford Advisor my goal is to provide confidential, accurate and timely assistance in-person, online and by telephone.  This role is dynamic and ever-evolving, a challenge I try to always have a smile on my face and hope that everyone feels like they can approach me for help.  

I love the community that Laurier Brantford offers me and feel very lucky to have such amazing colleagues to work with.  I look forward to what the future of Laurier has to offer.

Interests

When I am not at work I can be found enjoying many outdoor activities such as hiking, running and kayaking.  Contrary to my active lifestyle, I also enjoy sitting on the couch with a good movie and knitting.  A more recent hobby of mine has been cake decorating.  I have been known to assist with cakes/cupcakes for Laurier events, so keep your eye out for my 'designs'.
