UBC is home to me both as a staff member and as an alumnus. My family and I moved from the UK to Vancouver in 1980, and I am the first member of my family to pursue a university degree. So, it makes me particularly proud to have earned my PhD from the Faculty of Education in the MERM program at our Vancouver campus. I am a proud graduate of UBC and a staff member at our the Okanagan campus. I look forward to our bright future and playing a role in further developing our UBC story.
