How did your experience at Brock prepare you for your current role?
My experience at Brock was paramount for pushing me in the direction of international work. The International Services & Programs Abroad Office at Brock inspired me to pursue exchange opportunities which eventually led to a specific graduate program. Following the completion of my studies I came back to Brock and took a couple of jobs that focused on international work. These partnerships led to new opportunities and many of my connections at Brock were quite key in gaining my current and past employment.
