Queen's Student Alumni Association

Vice President of Volunteers

Having been an Ambassador with the association for three years, I demonstrated strong team work and leadership skills and was promoted to VP of Volunteers for the 2015-16 academic year, bringing my previous knowledge of QSAA with me. In this role, I implemented strategies for recruitment, hiring, and training of a volunteer Ambassador Team. My role continues throughout the year by ensuring high volunteer satisfaction and engagement, chairing General Meetings, establishing programs for skill development, and managing internal relations. This role has allowed me to develop personal connections with each volunteer, and I have also been able to collaborate with fellow Executive Leadership Team members and staff within the Alumni Relations and Annual Giving department of Queen's University.

For the first two years with this company, I worked as both a cashier and deli clerk. After this, I was promoted to the position of Supervisor, which increases my responsibility at the store. As a supervisor, my job is to ensure that all staff are working efficiently. On shift, I am the first point of contact for any questions or concerns, and am in charge of dealing with any issues that may arise. I must also ensure smooth operations and management of the store. Part of this role requires meeting with fellow supervisors and store managers to discuss store operations.
