Justin brings experience managing research and public relations projects to his role as Managing Assistant with Vibrant Communities.
Prior to completing a Master of Environmental Studies focusing on environmental justice, community development and the cognitive structures of environmental ideologies, Justin spent six years working in higher-education research and advocacy in Ontario and Alberta. During this time Justin was fortunate to manage a team of researchers and communications professionals to promote affordable, accessible and high-quality post-secondary education.
Having previously focused his studies at the intersection of economic and environmental equity and community building, Justin is excited to work with the VC team. As the managing assistant, he uses his experience with project management and organizing to make sure that the VC team is supported in meeting their goals.
Outside of work Justin spends time chasing frisbees, wandering forests, and getting distracted by wildlife and his camera. Justin lives in Kitchener with his fantastic partner Samantha.
