Life & Career Milestones

My path in life took a while to figure out

    Started working at Hobsons helping post-secondary institutions recruit students with marketing.

  • 6.

Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Parents:

    You're never going to make a lot of money in education.

  • How I responded:

    Sometimes it's not all about the money, you just need to do what you love to do. I'm thankful that in my career, I am able to work in the education industry but also have the financial benefits of working for a growing company.
