I came to Wilfrid Laurier University in 2012 after a variety of jobs across the country. I was trained as a “Secretary Typist” at Saskatchewan Technical Institute (now Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology) in Moose Jaw, SK. For the next 10 years, I worked at a small independent college in Moose Jaw, SK then Grant McKewan Community College in Edmonton. Duties ranged from answering telephones, registering students for night classes, preparing the college Newsletter, planning special events and MANY “other duties as required!” Since moving to Ontario, I have worked mainly in the non-profit setting as an executive assistant then public relations and fundraising – all of which directly supported people with complex medical and physical challenges at Brantwood Community Services in Brantford.
Working at the Sun Life Financial Movement Disorders Research and Rehabilitation Centre was a perfect fit when I felt that I needed a change. I enjoy working with research students who are “looking outside the box” and genuinely care about what they are doing. I interact with people every day who struggle with Parkinson’s disease so I enjoy challenging myself to regularly find ways to have a positive impact on their lives.
