    Emma Edwards

    – GDB’19

    Spring 2022

    After graduating, Emma immediately began a career in business development with IMRSV Data Labs with Queen’s alumnus Bennett Brown (MIB’15). In January 2021, Emma joined Digital Opportunity Trust (DOT), as a stakeholder relations specialist. DOT is an international non-governmental organization based in Ottawa founded by Queen’s alumna Janet Longmore. DOT works at the intersection of youth leadership, social entrepreneurship, innovation, and digital transformation. It supports young women to develop and lead social impact in their commu- nities. DOT’s global network of youth has created opportunities for over one million community members across Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, and among the Indigenous in Canada. She says, “Being a Queen’s alumni has truly opened doors due to the reputation Queen’s and Queen’s students hold within the business community.”

    Just sharing my good news as a hire to Queen’s in January 2020. I moved to Kingston from Georgetown, Ont., to attend Queen’s in 2007, and couldn’t bring myself to leave after graduation. I completed my certified property manager certification in 2018 and was extremely excited to join the Queen’s Community Housing team in January 2020 after eight years in the property management industry. The pandemic definitely made my experiences as a new staff member interesting, but the team I work with has been fantastic and I’m happy I made the transition into this role. I’ve since purchased my first house in the west end, and I don’t foresee moving away from Kingston (or Queen’s) any time soon!

    – EMBA’03

    Spring 2022

    After 40 years working in the aerospace industry, I retired in early 2019. The COVID-19 pandemic altered a few of my assumptions about careers and priorities. Now, I’m combining my management consulting experiences with the love of photography, writing, and all things culinary. And of course, I am glueing it all together in the brave new world of social networking (check out a few of my delish creations @thesauceison). Some other priorities include: bicycling, fundraising for a network of local hospitals and, most enjoyably, relishing in the evolving spirit of a three-year-old granddaughter. Best regards to Queen’s alumni and classmates!

    Michael Schauch

    – AMBA’07

    Spring 2022

    Michael Schauch is excited to share the release of his audiobook, A Story of Karma: Finding Love and Truth in the Lost Valley of the Himalaya published by RMB. The story chronicles Michael and his wife Chantal’s journey into a hidden Himalayan valley that had been closed off to outsiders for generations and how his failed attempt to find and scale an elusive pyramid mountain led him to meet a little girl in a remote mountain village. The encounter with Karma (the little girl) and her family would be the most profound connection of his life, changing the trajectory of all of their lives forever.
