“Originally from Saint John, I studied Interior Decorating in Ottawa then came back to the Port City to pursue my career. Before coming to Tuck, I worked at any number of retail stores, including the EQ3 store in Ottawa. I now live on Canada’s West Coast in British Columbia. Even though I’m far away, my home will always be Saint John.”
