I was on the advisory board of the Faculty of Administration for approximately 15 years and more recently I have been involved as panelist or mentor in several Associated Alumni Career Talks events

 Dynamic, organized and welcoming

In what ways do you volunteer outside of UNB within your community?

For the past 15 years I have held several leadership and communications roles in the minor hockey, elite hockey and high school hockey community

What motivates you to give back your time and energy to the Alumni Office/community as a volunteer?

I am excited by the tremendous networking and recruitment opportunity that it presents.  The time invested pays me back many times over!
