Degrees:Graduated with BA Honours in Environmental Studies and a minor in Geography Winter 2016

Through my practicum placement at Ottawa Centre EcoDistrict, I was able to gain valuable skills that I would not have received in the classroom. The experience I attained from working at a local Environmental NGO allows me to have insight into the world of non profits and determine whether it’s a career path I would like to explore. I feel more comfortable graduating and entering the work force now that I have developed the soft skills needed to succeed in today’s workforce.
