Full-Cycle Recruitment Specialist, M.Sc.

Summary

     My education and experience have taught me the ability to assess complex policy information and identify key issues, and to think strategically. I also have numerous years’ experience with research and analytic endeavors, project planning, and editing. I am able to utilize both qualitative and quantitative analysis in support of policy or program development and have a strong sense of current global issues, political trends and events impacting Canada both internally and globally. Diplomatic and tactful in any circumstance, I take pride in the professional and polished presentation of both myself and my work.
