I am the newest member of the Alumni team, having joined the office in May 2015 as the Alumni Advancement Officer – Strategic Engagement. A native of Nova Scotia, I graduated from Acadia University in 2005, and UNB in 2007 with an MBA and MASRA, and after a few years spent in Mississauga cheering on a mediocre Blue Jays squad, Fredericton once again came calling.  I happily returned in 2009 with my UNB graduate husband and we’ve laid down roots in this beautiful city.

As a strategist, communicator and marketer, my focus is on engaging our alumni through various initiatives, all the while outlining the lifetime benefits of being a graduate of this great institution. I am the office lead for marketing and communications with a particular focus on strategy, collateral development and online marketing. Working on the Alumni News has opened my eyes to the fantastic things that our graduates do once they leave campus, and telling their story to the world will help everyone else realize what this university is capable of. I love to hear stories about the exciting and often unique career paths our alumni embark on and I encourage you to get in touch with me at any time to tell your story.

When I leave “The Hill” for the day, I return home to my husband, who is also a proud UNB grad and employee, and two kids. You can often find us at the ballpark, hockey rink, basketball court or going for a leisurely stroll on the walking bridge. We love exploring this cosmopolitan planet of ours and daydream about the beautiful places we want to see next.

I am excited at the journey that we are on as an office and a university. Our alumni are UNB’s greatest ambassadors and I encourage all of you to remain involved if you already are, get involved if you’re not already, wear your red and black with pride, and show the world why you are #ProudlyUNB.
