What is your job position?

Manager, Student Experience

How long have you been at Saitsa?

I have been with Saitsa for 4 years now! Time flies!


What do you enjoy most about your job? 

I really enjoy the variety in the role and how each day looks different. Finding new ways to engage with students and finding ways to help them improve their experience while at SAIT is the best part!

What is your education and work background? 

I have a diploma in Broadcasting from Mount Royal University and a diploma in Administrative Information Management from SAIT.

Why did you choose to work for Saitsa? 

While I was a student at SAIT, I really developed a love for the campus and wanted to come back as an employee! I also participated in clubs while I was a student, so I was able to see first-hand the impact Saitsa has, and I wanted to be a part of that.

What advice do you have for new SAIT students? 

Get involved! Clubs and volunteering are such great ways to meet new people and they are also great resume builders!

Why should students get to know Saitsa? 

We are here to help! We want to hear from you and know how to better support SAIT students.
