I am the senior member of the alumni relations team at UNB. I started my advancement career in recruitment/admissions in 1993, and for more than 15 years I was the Alumni Program Manager on the Saint John campus.

The alumni office at UNBSJ did not exist before I started so I have been able to create and manage a range of engagement programs aimed at building the depth and diversity of relationships with both students and alumni. I am incredibly blessed to have spent the majority of my career at UNB, and to have had the unique opportunity to build a successful alumni relations program in Saint John. My favourite memories are the times spent with students and later connecting with them as alumni and hearing how UNB impacted who they are today. To see first-hand the growth of the campus and the increased pride and commitment from our alumni community, has been a highlight of my career.

I graduated with a public relations degree from Mount Saint Vincent University, and spent one year taking elective courses at UNB Saint John in the late 80’s. In 2009, I was named honorary member of the UNB Associated Alumni. My husband, Derrick Forret is also a proud UNB alumnus and our daughter, Kennedy, is in her first-year at UNB Fredericton. My joys outside of the office include cooking, interior decorating, and watching my son, Logan play basketball for Rothesay High School.
