What do you like about your job?

Interacting with students (mostly the Brock Student Ambassadors) and graduates and finding out what it is that they love about Brock. The memories that graduates share make me realize that the job that we do is truly worthwhile and makes a huge difference in people’s lives.

Where did you go on your last vacation?

My husband and I were in California for two weeks in June. We spent time in San Francisco (which is one of my favourite places), Los Angeles, Malibu and Santa Barbara. The focus of the vacation was to see Wagner’s Ring, which is an opera marathon of four operas in nine days. That was the not-so-fun part of the vacation. However, it is something I am storing for future pay-back when I want to take the children to Disney World and my husband doesn’t want to go.
