I am a graduate of Brock University in Kinesiology and also did a year in the Paramedic Program at Niagara College. After graduating, I couldn't decide what career path to take and had been working in retail throughout my University and College years, so I decided to stick with it. I moved quickly through the ranks in the retail world and became management which I enjoyed with for quite some time through a number of different companies. More recently I took a look at my life and the things that are most important to me and realized I needed a better work/life
balance. I have also always wanted to do something related to my education...so one door closed and the next one opened...and here I am as an Administrator with an incredible new team surrounding me.
