Becky Shillington: Balancing School and Work

When opportunities for personal or professional growth arise, “Just say ‘yes’, whenever you can,” says Becky Shillington.  “When you are young, you need to extend your scope and take advantage of any opportunities that come your way because that is where experience comes from.”

A native of Kingston, Becky did her undergrad in Biology and English at Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia, then returned home to enter the workforce. Queen’s first came into her life in 2011 as a place of employment, as she started working in the university’s Residence Life Office and has risen to the manager position she currently holds. “I was lucky to get a job at Queen’s,” says Becky. “Queen’s has such a dynamic working environment that gives you the chance to try various opportunities to know where to go next.”
