I’ve been a UW employee for over 22 years and am currently part of the Institutional Research group in the Office of Research. I have served as a UWSA Area Representative since 2008 and have been a UWSA Director since 2012. I also volunteered as a Staff Facilitator for the Student Leadership Program from 2008 to 2012. These roles have given me the invaluable experience of learning about the UW community; interacting with various academic units and departments and meeting a variety of staff, faculty and students on campus.

I joined the University of Waterloo in 2011 and represented the UWSA as a past member on the Pension & Benefits Committee. I believe that our University is a great place to work, but I understand that the employee experience varies between units across campus.
