Office: JCC B216

I am responsible for coordinating and supporting the University’s Strategic Framework and International Plan. I oversee the Office of Global Engagement to facilitate UVic’s global scholarship and engagement, and I collaborate with colleagues across campus engaged in global activities to harness resources, streamline existing processes and develop more strategic approaches to support students, faculty and staff in their globally focused work. In collaboration with this larger community, I steward the development and implementation of UVic’s International Plan.

I have a graduate degree in Public Administration from the University of Victoria and a bachelor degree in International Studies from the University of Northern British Columbia. I have worked with the University of Victoria for the past nine years and in the British Columbia international education sector for over twenty years.

I received the 2012 BC Council for International Education Award for Service Excellence in International Education and currently serve as a member of the Board of Directors for the Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE). In addition, I am a member of the BC Council on Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT).
