Biography

As the Manager, Executive and Technology MBA Careers, Wendy provides career programming and support to graduate students in the Executive MBA and the Management of Technology MBA programs, leading interactive workshops, and offering career advising and coaching. Since arriving at SFU Beedie in 2013, she has worked with associations such as BC Tech and the Alternative Investment Management Association to help connect graduate and undergraduate students to working professionals in the Technology, Finance and other communities.

With over 20 years’ experience in the career management field, including managing and facilitating a career exploration program assisting more than 1,600 adults in career confusion, Wendy has been an instructor at BCIT and The Art Institute of Vancouver where she taught a variety of topics such as job search, confidence building, becoming more assertive, and goal setting. Wendy holds a Bachelor of Business Administration and Marketing Management Diploma from BCIT and is a Certified Career Development Professional.

When not working with students, Wendy can be found walking trails on the side of Burnaby Mountain and playing with her Bichon Frisé, Diamond. She often enjoys gourmet meals with friends (they do the cooking and she brings the wine!)
