Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I spent the initial 18 years of my life in the northern reaches of Manitoba, in a quaint town known as The Pas. As a determined youngster, I landed my first job at the age of 13, and would later juggle two jobs while graduating in 2016. My pastime pursuits included exploring Manitoba’s many lakes like Clearwater Lake, enjoying time with friends, fixing cars, and playing sports such as soccer and volleyball. After graduation, I worked full-time in dietary at St. Anthoney Hospital before moving out to Lethbridge in 2017 to pursue a career in emergency medicine through St. John’s Ambulance. 

It would be another year before I pursued a passion in business. I completed the post-diploma transfer program at Lethbridge College and began my journey at the University of Lethbridge in 2019, enrolling in the Bachelor of Management program with a marketing major. 

Originally, the beauty of the ULethbridge campus and Lethbridge itself drew me in.

How long have you been at ULethbridge and what do you do here?
During my three years completing my post-diploma degree, I engaged with the co-op program and successfully landed a job at a local landscaping company as a marketing coordinator. I went on to successfully complete the “Summer of Giving” campaign impacting over 100,000 people and 19 local businesses during the summer of 2021.

I joined the Career Bridge Office in June 2022 as the Events and Outreach Coordinator.  My immediate task was to plan our in-person Career Fairs and provide high-quality professional and career development opportunities for both students and alumni. I play a large role in the marketing and strategic planning of Career Bridge programs and services, including Applied Studies, Career Services, Co-operative Education, MyExperience, and NCEWIL (Niitsitapi Centre for Work-Integrated Learning). Additionally, I contribute to employer recruitment and assist students in connecting with opportunities both before and after graduation.

Furthermore, I oversee over 100 volunteer positions for students throughout the year and facilitate federal funding for staff and faculty to offer students quality opportunities. When I'm not planning events or developing strategies, you can find me all over campus, actively promoting and sharing the incredible programs and services offered by the Career Bridge office.

What's the best part of your job?
The best part about my job here at the University is helping students find their passions and providing quality opportunities for professional and career development. I’ve learned a career path is a scribbly line, and helping students and grads find happiness at work fills my cup.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
When I’m not working for the University, I enjoy working as a marketing coordinator and manager at Luigis North, and I also serve the ULethbridge AUPE executive team as the treasurer. However, when I’m not working at any job, you can find me relaxing next to the closest body of water, walking around Nicholas Sheran Lake, or travelling to the mountains to explore.
