Associate Director, International Student Services
As my name might suggest, I come from somewhere else; in fact, I came to Alberta, almost 30 years ago as an international student from Trinidad and Tobago. So, I truly understand what it is like to feel homesick, to not have enough money, to work three jobs while trying to maintain a high GPA. I know what it is like to graduate with success, to volunteer, to parent, to negotiate the milieu of Canadian life. I have a certificate in Management Studies from Grant McEwan College, a BA (Hons.) in Political Science, from the University of Alberta, and certificates in Intercultural Communications from the Intercultural Communication Institute, in Portland, Oregon. Over the past 16 years, I built sound knowledge and skills in developing programs and teaching courses in intercultural communication education and human resources development, and international student programs and advising.
