What do you like most about your job?
“Every day is different. You get a lot of exposure to all ends of university life. Seeing the University grow as well (with the construction of new buildings) and expanding into the downtown core is really exciting.”
What do you do for fun?
“I’m pretty involved in the downtown community. I like to go to the market on Saturday, visit my favorite café, attend different events in the community, going to Centre for the Arts shows, just being a part of it all.”
What’s your favourite book that you’ve read?
“It’s not a favourite but it’s good. It’s a good read called ‘The Paris Wife.’ It’s about Hemingway and his first wife. It was fictional but based on true events.”
