Communications Strategist / Media / Instructor (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 18 December 2014
I learned a lot making the transition from Journalism to Communications. I was given great and increasing responsibility over my years there, but advancement was the biggest challenge, as I was only two levels down from the Vice President and advancement meant the continuing role of Director, which was eliminated when my direct report was let go suddenly. A new structure meant I reported to an Associate Vice President and it became clear to me after nearly a year that advancement was not in the cards. So I left to pursue my own consulting practice. This went well until I was hired at Northwest Community College a year later. I found nothing difficult at this position, the location was amazing, and the people were largely great. Upper management was challenging, but mostly because there were challenges at the very top. Those challenges continue to plaque this great little university. I'm happy to have moved on. I was also encouraged to teach, which was a significant complement to my professional experience.

Royal Roads University is a great place to work. My coworkers are very friendly and helpful. I usually expend a typical day troubleshooting, helping end users and working in new projects. It is very important to be organized and prioritize your tasks. I work with Open Source projects so I like to be involved with the community of these projects. We are always learning and thinking in better ways of doing things.
