Belated Welcome to Marie Cummings

Marie handles the details of financial processing, financial record keeping, and record retrieval for the Department. Marie also assists staff with diverse work projects, as required.

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.
