The gryphon community spirit, along with what we learned in our respective programs, has made us the determined, knowledgeable professionals we are. We have combined our love of sustainability conservation, photography and film in our new company, Dronemates. Active projects involve agriculture and forestry and solving problems associated with climate change.

I am so grateful for the excellent education I received at U of G! I did a double major in psychology and sociology…but never knew what I wanted to do with it – only that I wanted to help people. Years later, while living in Toronto, I found the answer. I am now a psychotherapist registered with the new college (CRPO) and have a private practice plus a position with my psychotherapy school on the counselling clinic for their current students. My education has come full circle, and I couldn’t be happier.

The university of Guelph diploma program sparked my passion for business. After going on to earn a B. Comm. and a CA designation, I began a career that has spanned several roles and industries. I worked in a global fertilizer company for 18 years, including three years living and working in Argentina as the general manager of an agricultural services company. I am currently vice-president, finance and services, at the University of Calgary. I credit University of Guelph for giving me a solid foundation for my personal and professional growth.

I started a new legal services practice called Lighthouse last July and have surpassed all sales expectations in the first year. I must thank my 2015 MBA cohort for all their support and networking, which helped Lighthouse succeed in its first year. Looking forward to connecting with alumni in 2018-2019.
