Over 20 years’ experience in education. What keeps me motivated? Simple, my passion is STUDENT SUCCESS. By providing leadership in career services and student affairs, I have been able to impact student employment rates, student recruitment, student retention, and student engagement.
Education: My Masters in Education, with a specialization in Enrollment Management, has strengthened my roles in higher education, which have included: career coaching, academic advising, admissions, marketing, and teaching.
Key Skills: I have an extensive background in workshop facilitation, training, and & learning and development. I am a leader with experience in staff management, training/coaching, managing and organizing large-scale events. I have been active on senior management committees and have spearheaded the start-up of a college career centre. I have been involved in high-level strategic planning sessions, leading to department/organizational change and growth.
Relationship Builder: My ability to build collaborative working relationships with faculty, staff, students, community groups, and the business community have been an integral part of my career. I am a connector and believe in the importance of helping others build their network. As a result of working closely with students to understand their career development needs, and my ability to build strong professional networks, I have consistently supported over 95% of students find employment within the first 4 months of graduation.
Other Work Experience: In addition to my extensive experience in education, I have worked in the non-profit sector as a manager of a community youth program, and as a Business Analyst for a national organization.
I currently work with MBA students at SFU’s Beedie School of Business in Vancouver, BC. If you're an employer looking to hire an MBA, or interested in being more engaged on campus, you can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 778-782-3605.
