Student Support & Disability Services Coordinator, Vancouver, BC - January 6, 2014
This job included a lot of scope and variety, allowing interactions with students, faculty, staff from various departments and community resource agents. This was the first time I was exposed to the needs and learning opportunities of students with various disabilities so the learning curve was steep to start. However, the students were patient and my up-line support team was understanding and helpful. There are two parts I think I enjoyed most in my last position: 1) making connections with students and the community to ensure that everyone was well informed of their resources to address their health and wellness needs, and 2) educating our staff and faculty about what to expect in handling the needs of our students with various disabilities.
