originally from ontario, i am now fortunate to call calgary home! during my years at stfx university, i took every opportunity to get involved! whether that was a part-time job, or joining various societies/clubs, i took advantage of them all. these opportunities afforded me my degree, my beloved x-ring, and most recently my role as stfx’s student success leader for students from western canada. i look forward to helping you discover your very own x-perience!

antigonish has been my home away from home ever since i stepped foot on the stfx campus for my undergraduate studies. during my degree, i studied abroad in australia, volunteered through course-based service learning, and was a student ambassador for the embassy of australia to promote studying abroad at stfx.  i love helping students discover their passion in education and finding their fit at stfx. working as an international admissions specialist has allowed me to do just that with international students and families from around the world.
