Originally from Ontario, I am now fortunate to call Calgary home! During my years at StFX University, I took every opportunity to get involved! Whether that was a part-time job, or joining various societies/clubs, I took advantage of them all. These opportunities afforded me my degree, my beloved X-Ring, and most recently my role as StFX’s Student Success Leader for students from Western Canada. I look forward to helping you discover your very own X-perience!

Hailing from Halifax, NS, I graduated from StFX in 2018 with a BBA in Leadership & Management.

Although I will be mainly working with students from Nova Scotia and PEI, I am always happy to chat with anyone, so feel free to send me an email!

Originally from Ottawa, Ontario, I completed my BBA at StFX, fell in love with the Xavarian experience and now get to spread the word about it all over Eastern Ontario and Quebec! In this role, I get to make connections with and support students through their unique process of becoming Xavarians. Passionate about positive change and all things watermelon flavoured. I love what I do, so please feel free to contact me at any time!

Coming from Toronto to Antigonish was certainly an adjustment, but now there’s no going back for me. I love the Nova Scotia feel and have been involved with almost every aspect of campus life and I look forward to helping more students find their way into what I experienced at StFX. Send me an email and I’ll be more than happy to help you with any question you have.

Antigonish has been my home away from home ever since I stepped foot on the StFX campus for my undergraduate studies. During my degree, I studied abroad in Australia, volunteered through course-based service learning, and was a student ambassador for the Embassy of Australia to promote studying abroad at StFX.  I love helping students discover their passion in education and finding their fit at StFX. Working as an International Admissions Specialist has allowed me to do just that with international students and families from around the world.

Originally from London, Ontario—my first day in Nova Scotia was my first day at StFX. I graduated as an English Major, with a minor in Art History. After coming to school, to play football, I was welcomed by the StFX community. For the last five years I have been happy to call Antigonish my home.
