Bachelor of Arts Honours Double Major English and Communication Studies
Business Expertise Senior Consultant, Government of Canada
Since graduating from York, I have studied broadcast journalism, career counselling and most recently completed the Technical and Professional Communication certificate program at Glendon College. My career has included a number of opportunities within the financial sector but has been predominantly spent in the public sector. My public sector career began at the Canada Revenue Agency and for the past ten years I have worked for Service Canada. During this time I have held the position of Program Officer, Strategic Services Officer, Communications Advisor and Consultant. I began my studies at York as a Business major but switched to Communication Studies after my first year. I found the program curriculum to be very diverse, covering a number of disciplines. I enjoyed this approach and I can now see how this has shaped my career. I have been able to apply the competencies learned across a wide range of job roles.
