About Jesse

Having lived in three Canadian provinces and five different cities, I can say with certainty that Victoria is where I want to live for the rest of my life.

UVic's rich culture and history, endless opportunities and calming community create an inspiring and invaluable learning environment that you truly have to experience to understand. My UVic education has changed my life, and I love paying it forward to the next generation of university students.

My advice to future university students

I firmly believe that what a student gets out of university depends greatly on what they put in. Take chances and try new things, learn from your mistakes, have an open mind and work hard. And while you're doing all that, make sure to enjoy yourself!

Oh, and always say hello to the person sitting next to you in class.


Let's talk!

I'm here to answer any questions you have about UVic. We can connect over email, meet online using Zoom, or meet in person if you're planning a visit to our campus.
