I’ve enjoyed working as a career practitioner at ISSofBC for many years. Using creative strategies and a strengths-based approach, I focus on helping newcomers understand the local labour market, compete for jobs, and adapt to local workplace customs. I also enjoy working as a freelancer, taking on contracts related to career development and adult education. Most recently I participated in research for a BC CAT Transfer Innovations Project (Adult Education discipline) concentrating on core learning outcomes and transfer pathways in adult education in BC. Continuously learning, I returned to university as a mature mid-career student and will soon complete a BA in Adult Education.
