I have changed career paths a few different times while at the University of Waterloo. I started by working in the Cooperative Education department in their Interview Day Services team. I then began working as the Coordinator of Clubs and Camps for the department of Athletics. In both these departments, and in all of my co-op positions in Undergrad, I was in a brand-new role, which required me to develop the position, protocols and expectations. In Athletics specifically, I was tasked in initiating the Multi-sport camps program and Play Days program, which have now grown into our biggest kids programs in the department. The skills I learned relate to student and employee coaching, program development, and student experience, which lead me to launch our esports program. This launch and expansion made us one of the top programs in Canada.
My journey into esports stemmed from the background I developed while in my undergraduate degree and initial years of my career at the University of Waterloo. The experiences I had developing successful student programming, event planning, and competitive teams brought me to a position where I now lead one of Canada’s top university esports programs.
