What I'm doing now

I am a Financial Analyst for Lotus Pacific Investments Inc and the job includes modelling of new investment opportunities along with running models on existing properties to assess new leasing and sale options. I live in a suburb of Vancouver, North Vancouver, which is close to 3 ski hills, beaches and the famous Grouse Grind. More importantly I am less than an hours drive away from Squamish, which is home to some of the best rock climbing in the country.

My best Lancaster memory

I have two memories that stand out when I think about my time at Lancaster. First, joining the LUMC (Lancaster University Mountaineering Club), it is impossible to think about my time at Lancaster without referring to my numerous adventures with this group. We had many field trips to local crags, rain or shine, and I can’t forget our weekly meet ups which always ended at Hustle! I still keep in touch with several members and recently went climbing with one in Squamish and Boulder, CO. Second, is the feeling I had when I finally held in my hands the finished version of my dissertation. After spending every waking moment for months on this paper it felt amazing to finally be finished and hand it in for grading.

What Lancaster means to me

I am extremely proud to be a graduate of Lancaster. I feel that the program and professors helped set me up for success after graduation. I look forward to returning in the future. 

Why I volunteer as an alumni group co-ordinator

I think networking is important to a successful career and what better way to start then fellow alumni.
