Alumni Week Q&A

What is your fondest memory from U of G?

I have so many great memories, it’s hard to choose. I remember the delicious, if greasy(!) breakfasts from Massey Hall, hanging out with friends at “The Keg” in the University Centre, and studying on Johnson Green (when it wasn’t covered in snow!) Also, the Bullring was a dance club in my day!

 

What values did U of G instill in you that you carry to this day?

Balancing hard work with time for friends. We were a tight-knit group in Human Kinetics – we studied hard, volunteered as subjects in each other’s research studies, and bonded over the nail-biting “bell-ringer” exams in Dr. Boyd’s Gross Human Anatomy class – but we also found time to relax and have fun together outside of classes.

 

What is one piece of advice you want to give to current and future U of G students?

Be open to new ideas! Your education and career path may not follow a straight path. I never imagined I would be an entrepreneur and start my own business. My undergraduate training at U of G laid the foundation for a successful career in neuroscience research, and has also translated well to a second career in the business world!

 

What does CBS 50th anniversary/AlumniWeek mean to you?

It’s hard to believe that CBS has been around for 50 years. What a testament to the quality and strength of the college, offering students an excellent education in a huge breadth of subjects for half a century! Here’s to another successful 50 years.
