Biography: I joined UCC in the fall of 2003 as the Prep Shop Manager. For the last five years I have run both the Upper & Prep Blues Shops where I support the entire UCC community with their uniform and school supply needs. I have also worked as an organizational Academic Coach through the Wernham & West Centre for Learning, facilitated typing and sign language classes, been an adviser for Bremner’s House and a chaperone for a community service trip to China. UCC has utilized all my skills and I have been very proud to work here. Personally, I enjoy travelling and have travelled extensively, but have been staying close to home since returning from maternity leave after having my daughter Jamie.
