Raised in the small town of Glace Bay, Nova Scotia currently studying in the Bachelor of Business Administration program majoring in Accounting with a concentration in Legal studies. As President of the SU I am responsible to oversee the Union as a whole and its day-to-day operations. This year my main focus is revitalizing the union and enhancing student life. To add to that I am focused on ensuring that each student knows about and takes full advantage of the Services we offer as an organization and empower them to achieve their goals. I want to make sure that every student at CBU gets the best university experience while receiving a high-quality education. I am especially excited to be with Students NS and continue to be a strong voice on post-secondary issues in the province.
