Educational Leadership EdD graduate in the Faculty of Education

What an honour! I have graduated in the Faculty of Education twice in a decade and President Andrew Petter signed both my degrees. I have worked in education all my career, taking various teaching and leadership roles in K-12 and higher education settings. My main research interest is educational leadership and my EdD thesis is titled "Experiencing leadership: A study exploring perceptions of leadership of people who pursued doctoral studies in Educational Leadership at Simon Fraser University".

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?

Studying at SFU means being part of a supportive culture that encourages professionalism, diversity, and friendship.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR RESEARCH AND/OR PROGRAM.

Sharing "the EdD Learning Space" with my awesome peers and professors, as well as engaging in research processes helped me widen my horizons and deepen my understanding of the education system, policy, and leadership.

WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?

The dialogue, collegial relationships, and strive for innovation.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE?

Fun fact: I have yet to cross the pond at SFU Burnaby as part on my Convocation Ceremony: October 2010 - it rained! June 2020 - virtual celebration.
