LE,NOṈET Student Engagement and Support Coordinator
Office: FPH139

Hello! My name is Chelsea McMenamie. I am Cowichan on my maternal side and Danish on my paternal side. I also consider myself Scottish through my adoptive family. I grew up in Victoria when I was ten years old. I am one of those Victoria lifers who moved away only to be called back.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Child and Youth Care and strongly believe in celebrating Indigenous success. I feel it’s essential to bring this belief to Campus to support Indigenous students to not give up on their education paths. I aim to help Indigenous students to equitable access throughout their academic journeys. 

I joined the First Peoples House IACE team in March 2022 as the LE,NOṈETStudent Engagement and Support Coordinator. In my role, I help students with information on Campus Cousins, LE,NOṈET bursaries, IACE financial awards, and any other student supports. If you are an Indigenous student attending the University of Victoria who has education questions or issues, do not hesitate to reach out to me for assistance. I’m here to support you so that you may continue to succeed!
