Hello! My name is Heather, and I’m the Career Advisor for the New Brunswick campus of Yorkville University. My experience as a career practitioner began in 2019, spanning the post-secondary and non-profit sectors. My role consists of advising and helping students find work through a positive, strengths-based, and client-centered approach. My education includes an M. Ed. in Educational Counselling and a Career Development Practitioner Certificate. What motivates me most is supporting students in their career journeys, and I have coached hundreds of people with their resumes, cover letters, interview skills, self-esteem, confidence building, and securing meaningful employment!
I also have 14+ years’ research experience in psychiatry, public health, and medical sciences. My roles ranged from research analyst to program coordinator of a pan-Canadian cardiology research network. I have authored 4 scholarly publications and have presented at various conferences.
When I’m not at work, I am a certified RAD dance instructor in classical ballet, lyrical jazz and hip hop and have been teaching dance to children and youth for 14+ years on both sides of the country! I also enjoy hot yoga, traveling and musical theatre. Please feel free to reach out and connect, I would love to hear how I can help you in your career journey.
