Academic Background

BSc. Computing (Wilfrid Laurier University)


I first came to Laurier in August 1993 to begin my undergraduate degree in Computing and Computer Electronics. I graduated in 1998 then worked in Burlington and Missisisauga, until finally moving back to Waterloo to begin work in September 2000 as a Part-Time Faculty member teaching in Physics and Computer Science. In November 2000 I was hired full-time as a Lab Instructor and continued teaching part-time until January 2001.

In Fall 2004, I took over the position of Training and Education Coordinator for ITS while Melanie More-Duckworth was on maternity leave. The position was from August 2004 - April 2005.

As a student in my undergrad years, I have worked for the following departments:

  • CCS (now called Information Technology Services)
  • Alumni Affairs/Development

As well, I also did volunteer work for various areas in the WLU Students' Union:

  • WLUSU Marketing as a Graphic Designer, then Web Site Coordinator
  • Foot Patrol
  • Ice Breaker

Currently, I am a Running Instructor at The RunningRoom in Waterloo teaching a 10K Running Clinic and I also volunteer at HopeSprings Cancer Support Centre.
