ADVOCATING FOR THE STUDENT
I had an extensive career in the educational and financial services industries, in senior management and entrepreneurial roles which grounded my professional competencies in leadership development, presenting, recruitment, and relationship management. Drawing upon this foundation, as an academic scholar, my desire is to continue advocating for the student by disseminating knowledge and research of inclusive education through community networks, educational institutions and professional organizations. Therefore, the two artifacts which demonstrated my professional competencies were; a video presentation at the Canadian Society for the Study of Education (CSSE) conference (artifact #4) and my community service contributions at UPEI (artifact #5) outlined below:
