Kathy has worked in various roles at UBC including the Centre for Community Engaged Learning (CCEL), Enrolment Services, and the Faculty of Land and Food Systems focusing on experiential learning, student engagement, and educational development. In her time with Arts Co-op, Kathy was the Program Assistant supporting Arts students to land co-op jobs, which led her to become the Project Coordinator responsible for designing and delivering the Arts Amplifier with an equity, diversity, and inclusion lens. These opportunities along with her lived experience and undergraduate studies focused on institutional and systemic inequities have led her to continue her career at the exciting intersection of education, professional development, and justice. Kathy believes that the evolving world of work requires up-and-coming professionals to be lifelong learners, adaptable, and open-minded to the current and emerging diverse career opportunities ahead of them.
Kathy is actively involved in Co-op Education and Work-Integrated Learning Canada (CEWIL Canada) as a member of the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion committee. In 2020, she was a member of Arts Co-op’s Equity, Diversity & Inclusion committee to reduce and remove barriers for Arts students and employers who wish to participate in co-op.
Beyond being a career professional, Kathy dedicates her personal time to learn and connect with others through further education, volunteering in the community, and mentoring students.
