I am passionate about lifelong learning and learning through reflection on doing. I also believe that participating in the social and ecological world around us is very important for ourselves and the world around us. I connect community (basically anything other than an individual) with instructors and students whose courses are relevant to community endeavours. You can contact me if you have a project (research, creative, consulting, etc.), volunteer position, field work or other endeavour that you would like to involve students in.

Community engagement is a powerful way for the university and community to work together on addressing complex challenges that face society. In my role I work collaboratively across UVic and with members of the community to strengthen relationships, identify opportunities where we can collaborate and build reciprocal partnerships that have a positive impact on the communities UVic serves. Please get in touch to explore how we can bring the strengths, experience and knowledge of UVic and community together to co-create solutions that address issues which matter to us all.
