My Profile

Greetings from Seneca College's King Campus, located about 40 km north of Toronto, Canada. Here at the King Campus, we offer a variety of programs in the Faculty of Applied Arts and Health Sciences.

Professional Background

I've been with Seneca College for about two months now, but have worked in the area of post-secondary education for almost 12 years now. Most of my post-secondary background has been at Algonquin College in Ottawa, Canada, where I was Manager, Client Service in the Registrar's Office (9 yrs) and Academic Manager, School of Part-time Studies (2.5 yrs).

Alongside these roles, I became active in designing, developing and delivering online learning for students taking courses at Algonquin College and through OntarioLearn in about 2003 and have, thus far, created and facilitated about a dozen courses in the fields of client relations and environmental studies. Here at Seneca, I am partially involved in supporting faculty who wish to transform their existing traditionall-delievered courses to a more hybrid model. Wikis and other OERs play a role in that.

Previous to that, I worked as a recreation centre director and in various retail management roles in a variety of places in Canada (Northwest Territories, Saskatchewan and Ontario).

Master of Distance Education, Athabasca University, 2006
