Participant Profile

Jennifer Ferdinands

Alumni & Events Officer, Faculty of Environmental Studies, York University

BAS Marketing, 2008

I have been part of the York University community since commencing my undergraduate studies in 2003. After completing my BAS in 2008 I began full-time employment at the Schulich Executive Education Centre, where I had the opportunity to work with clients interested in professional development. My current work as the Alumni & Events officer at the Faculty of Environmental Studies has given me the opportunity to connect with program graduates and to develop relationships with them, the Faculty and the University.

Currently, I am working towards my Masters of Education at York and hope to complete my thesis sometime next year. My research focuses on the experience of immigrant students in post-secondary education.

I love to help people, and enjoy volunteering my time wherever possible. I hope that through TASTE, I may be able to discuss some of the things you are most interested in or curious about and let you know a little more about my journey since graduation!
