Meet your Ombudsperson

Hello to all Students, Faculty, and Staff,

I am grateful to introduce myself and be your Ombudsperson at Dalhousie University.

Before becoming the Ombudsperson, I worked at Dalhousie in the Student Accessibility Centre and on the Residence Life Team. My educational background is in Social Work, and I am a proud graduate of Dalhousie’s Masters of Social Work program.

In working from the Ombudsperson Office, my approach is to listen, understand, and support. I provide free, confidential support to Dalhousie students and faculty/staff by helping you to solve your concerns and complaints as situations arise.

I look forward to meeting you.
