Educational Administrator; High School Career Life Coordinator & Academic Advisor
Beginning life in the UK, Harriet completed a BSc in Sport & Exercise Science and a PGCert in Professional Studies in Education (Primary PE Specialist). During her studies, she also competed in figure skating, achieving a silver medal in the Artistic category at the British Adult Championships, 2014. After working as a Year 4 Class Teacher in London, she went on to teach PE & Performing Arts across North Yorkshire for students aged 4-11.
Upon arrival to Canada, Harriet became acquainted with Canadian schools as an Education Assistant in Banff, AB before her love for the mountains and lakes of BC brought her to Squamish. Here she spent three years broadening her experience at an Outdoor Environmental & Indigenous Cultural Education Centre. This involved teaching Outdoor Environmental Education programs (Grades 1-12), providing mentorship for high school students, and coordinating the program administration.
Harriet is excited to draw on these experiences as she provides administrative support for the High School and guidance for students with Exchange, Fundraising and Post-Secondary Planning. Outside of work, she enjoys playing music (violin, guitar, ukulele) and various activities (yoga, skiing, cold-water swimming).
