I am currently a student at Camosun College and the University of Victoria, and am working towards a Bachelors Degree in Professional Communications at Royal Roads. It took me a while to realize Communications was the route I wanted to take. I have always been a history lover and enjoy travelling, especially to Europe. I eventually realized, after touring many historical sites, that the stories about people are the ones that stick with me the most. One of my favorite activities when travelling is to engage the people around me in conversation. My strength as an Includer has allowed me to learn from a wide variety of travellers as well as knowledgeable residents. My communication strength had always been there I just did not realize that could lead to a career.

My work in retail has really brought out my strengths as a Developer, specifically in regards for interpreting the customer’s wants and needs. I am privileged to have had a positive retail experience working with and interacting with a diverse group of people. I take pride in my helpful service and positive attitude, which directly feeds into my characteristic as an Achiever. Working in retail can definitely be a team effort using your lifelines and resources but it is also very individual work, which an Achiever strives for.

My photos are a summary of my love of people and travels. Photos are how I communicate about how I see the world in a specific time and place. For me, they are memories and moments locked in time. Please feel free to view my photography website linked above.
