Western University Masters of Environment and Sustainability
In the Spring of 2020, I graduated from the University of Guelph with a Bachelor of Arts, specializing in Psychology and Sociology. It was at the onset of the pandemic and I had moved back home to Sarnia. I had become intertwined with the Environmental sector in both Sarnia and Guelph and was continuing to learn about the climate crisis on my own time. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do for a job, but the environment was calling for my attention in my free time. Upon graduation, a friend and I ended up starting a digital marketing business to help small businesses in Sarnia transition to online ordering and marketing techniques. I found great joy in our work, however there was still a strong pull towards environmental work. I was continually inspired to pursue environmental work in the form of a hobby or volunteer activities.
