Hello! It's nice to meet you! Born and raised in Southern Ontario, I graduated from Laurentian University in 1993 with my Honors Bachelor of Physical and Health Education degree. A year later, I moved out west to Calgary where I worked for several years in various roles within the world of magazine publishing and wholesale distribution.

In 2005, I began an entirely different career in the field of post-secondary education. Working primarily in a student advising role, I found a renewed sense of purpose and fulfillment from helping others achieve their educational goals. In November of 2010, I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to bring my passion for student advising here to Athabasca University as a Senior Academic Advisor.

When I am not happily helping AU students with course selection and program planning, I can be found outside on my bicycle (I am an avid road cycling fan!), hiking or camping in the mountains with my spouse, or watching hockey on T.V. (Go, Leafs, Go! – I am from Ontario, remember?!).

Welcome to AU and please let me know how I can be of service.

Best wishes,
