I have been at OC since 2003 and in the role of Associate Dean since 2015.  Prior to moving into the AFP Dean’s Office, I was a faculty member and Chair of the Department of Communications.  I hold an MA in English with a focus on composition and rhetoric from SFU. Like many OC students, I was myself a mature student, beginning my undergraduate studies at 31 years old.  My experiences as such—starting my studies at a college and transferring to a university—make my work here especially meaningful.

Credentials:
MA, English, SFU
BA, English, Langara, SFU
