Marie joined the Department in May 2018 as finance clerk before taking a leave of absence to care for her elderly mother who now lives with her. Prior to working full time in the PT Department, Marie also worked at BC Studies as a Sales and Marketing Assistant. Pre-UBC, Marie worked in hotels (Audit), a petroleum supply company (Accounts Receivable), a private club (Accounts Receivable, Procurement), and VANOC (Accounts Payable). In her spare time, she has tried learning the guitar, built a bike (yes, it is rideable, albeit colourful), done drawing and pottery, and is currently obsessed with rock climbing. Proudest physical moments: finishing the Quebec Marathon and climbing the Squamish Chief. She doesn’t talk much, unless you ask her about climbing.
