Moving to Halifax and beginning King’s Foundation Year Program was a transformative life experience. It provided me with the opportunity to participate in a thriving academic community and form lasting connections and friendships. It also presented a set of challenges inherent to adapting to a new environment and campus life. I’ve seen firsthand how important Academic Services and Advising are to one’s experience on campus.

After FYP, I continued my undergraduate education at King’s and pursued areas of study that fascinated me across King’s upper-year programs – as well as being involved in numerous student societies and initiatives. I graduated in 2019 with a Combined Honours degree in Early Modern Studies and English, a minor in History of Science and Technology, and a Certificate in Art History and Visual Culture. The interdisciplinary education I received at King’s inspired me to complete a master’s degree in Museum Studies at the University of Glasgow, where I examined educational narratives conveyed through the navigation of museum and gallery spaces.

Since returning to Halifax, I’ve had the opportunity to support students and professors on campus as a Teaching Assistant at King’s, and I’ve worked for a variety of arts and culture organizations in Nova Scotia with a focus on community engagement and education.

I am very excited to continue supporting King’s students as an Academic Services and Events Officer. If you have questions about degree-planning, academics, what services are available to you on campus, or if you just want to chat about course selection and opportunities, I’m looking forward to speaking with you! Whether you have just started your degree or are looking ahead to life after graduation, I’m here to talk with you about your experiences and goals to figure out how King’s can best support you.
