I coordinate global scholarship opportunities for students and researchers. This includes the adjudication of internal funding for outbound student mobility and managing UVic’s participation in Global Affairs Canada’s scholarship programs.

In line with the Off-Campus Activity Risk Management Policy I provide guidance for pre-departure and risk considerations for UVic-related international travel.

I also support UVic’s visiting international researchers and create opportunities for the campus community to engage with global membership organizations.

Before joining BC’s international education community in 2011 I worked in the travel industry in Asia. I have a degree in Intercultural Studies from the University of British Columbia and an MBA from Hamburg University in Germany.
