Hi there! My name is Alex, and I am a Career Advisor at Toronto Film School. It is my job to help students and alumni unlock their potential by providing them with the tools and education necessary to reach their career goals. Through a strength-based, solution-focused approach I assist students in career exploration, preparing for work, finding work, and managing their employment.
Throughout my professional history, I have successfully supported the career development of over 600 individuals. Prior to TFS, I worked with various populations such as adults, newcomers, and at-risk youth in 1:1 and group settings. In addition, I have led 140+ tech students through engaging Professional and Life Skills Development courses. I am passionate about education, and am currently working towards my Master of Education, Adult Education, with Yorkville University.
When I am not working or studying, I’m wandering around Toronto’s thrift stores with a cup of coffee in hand. I adore finding hidden gems to decorate my home with, or unique pieces to add to my wardrobe. In addition, I love spending time with my partner playing board games, or simply lounging at home with my black cat, Beau.
