Natasha Moroz: co-op student hired by UVic alum

Natasha Moroz

This summer, UVic geography and environmental studies co-op student Natasha Moroz is working as the marketing and business development specialist for Nature Bee beeswax wraps, a Victoria-based company that was founded by UVic alumn Katie Gamble.

Moroz is managing Nature Bee’s website development, social media content and online marketing, as well as contributing to graphic design projects.

Coming full circle

Nature Bee is a local company that produces and sells reusable beeswax wraps.

The company started as a final project during Gamble’s last year at UVic, where she completed a Bachelor of Commerce. 

“Natasha is making such a difference to my business”—Katie Gamble

Moroz was hired for her position at Nature Bee through UVic’s co-operative education program. Gamble, the founder of Nature Bee, was also a co-op student during her time at UVic. She says that bringing a co-op student into your business can provide a new and unique perspective.

Co-op program

With more than 4,200 placements each year, UVic has one of Canada’s largest university co-operative education programs. Co-op integrates academic studies with relevant paid work experience in more than 40 academic areas.

Our co-op program is designed to help students start their careers while they’re still in university. The combination of academic courses and relevant work experience lets our students put their learning into action.

Close to half of eligible UVic undergraduates take part in co-op and graduate with experience in their field. 75 per cent of our co-op students graduate with job offers.

An edge of expertise

Our commitment to dynamic learning gives our students a powerful edge of expertise. 75 per cent of our co-op students graduate with job offers.

When we give our students the opportunity to take their learning outside the classroom, they put their innovation into action. They engage directly in problem solving, gain career-relevant expertise and experience deep personal growth. Moroz and Gamble are two of many students who have found inspiration in UVic’s wide variety of dynamic learning opportunities.
