Alumni Profile

I remember the first day I walked into King's Open House. I felt at home. Sitting in on a few sociology classes that day sparked my curiosity. What could I learn here? How does society impact all of us? 

"I get to interact with people constantly and encourage my staff - ensuring they understand how important their role is to patient care. I would not have the skills to perform my role to the best of my ability had I not attended King's."

I decided on taking a Sociology degree at King's because I knew I would get an incredible education and my beliefs would be challenged in the classroom. I was constantly encouraged to look at the facts and information presented in class and determine my own path, I learnt how to think and approach situations, rather than being taught what to think. 

My future was shaped by these experiences in the classroom, but also by the incredible community I was privileged enough to be part of. I spent the majority of my degree as an Ambassador and went to a lot of events put on by the Commuter Program. These made my King's experience relational, not just academic. 

I now work for Alberta Health Services in their Environmental Services Department based out go the University of Alberta Hospital. I work with recruitment, onboarding and training staff. I can honestly say that I love my job. I get to interact with people constantly and encourage my staff - ensuring they understand how important their role is to patient care. I would not have the skills to perform my role to the best of my ability had I not attended King's.
