MA GNDS 2012, BAH GNDS, SXGD Certificate
“I completed both my undergraduate and master's degrees in Gender Studies at Queen's. I have gained over seven years of experience in the non-profit sector, primarily in the areas of marketing, communications, fundraising and advocacy. Currently, I am the Manager of Communications at Samuel Family Foundation. My background in gender studies enabled me to develop a sophisticated understanding of complex social and structural issues and instilled within me a deep passion for social justice and intersectional feminism, which has informed everything I do in my life, both personally and professionally.
A highlight from my time at GNDS was working as a Teaching Assistant for the department. I loved facilitating tutorials and seeing 'lightbulbs go off' when students made connections between the course materials and their lived experiences. I still deliver guest lectures on occasion just so that I can experience that feeling of fulfillment that comes with knowledge sharing.”
