Education and Work:

I’m currently going into my fourth year of my Biomedical Science Major & Neuroscience Minor at the University of Guelph. This is my second year working with Students Offering Support, but before that, I worked as an events coordinator with the MS Society of Canada, as a tech consultant for the STEAM program run by the Simcoe County District School Board, and as a lifeguard and counselor at Ryde Lake Camp.
