Career Story

I was so busy in high school volunteering in a variety of sports, organizations, and associations that I was academically not prepared for post-secondary.

I chose to complete a second degree just in case I couldn't get my grades high enough to finish my Kinesiology degree. Once in the program that sparked my passions, I invested academically and loved the learning.

Positions in not-for-profits, private corporations, working for myself as a consultant, and roles with volunteer organizations opened doors to career and personal growth.

Thirty years after initially graduating from university, I went back and completed my Masters, helping both quench my desire for learning and education, and at the same time, stoking the fires for the pursuit of a PhD.

Each experience, placement, role gave me skills and contacts that are invaluable. Careers and industries are smaller than you realize, and those connections will help you grow and learn, and open employment opportunities.
