Change happens to us all…
Lois Nightingale has accepted a position as coordinator of the portfolios for the Associate Dean Students and Assistant Dean Student Services in the Faculty of Arts at UBC. We congratulate Lois on her new role and wish her every success. Lois has been with the Rehabilitation Science Online Programs since August, 2007. During this time she has implemented many improvements to our learner supports and accounting systems. Like the 2010 Spring Graduates, we too are not sure what we will do without her helpful and timely reminders.
Replacing Lois is Andrea Walus who returns from her maternity leave, and joins us September 1. Prior to her leave, Andrea was the Administrative Manager for the Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy (OS&OT) and provided valuable support to the online programs. Andrea is keen to contribute more to our growing programs. She holds baccalaureate degrees in Mathematics and Education, and taught high school and elementary school before moving to BC when her husband accepted a position in UBC engineering. We are extremely fortunate to have Andrea join us.
Although Lois leaves officially on August 6, 2010 she will return occasionally in August/early September to orient Andrea to the online programs.
Please join us in congratulating Lois and welcoming Andrea.
