I’m excited to join the Alumni Committee because Calgary Academy was a great experience for me and I want to do what I can to give back. I was at CA for six years from Grades 7-12, and I graduated in 2016. I am now working on my Master of Science in Physiology at the University of Calgary after graduating from Mount Allison University in 2020.
I started at Calgary Academy in Grade 4 and graduated in 2020. I am really excited to be joining the Alumni committee because most of my life has been spent at Calgary Academy. CA is my home and my family, so I would do anything to give back to the community that helped shape who I am today. Being a part of this committee allows me to be involved in this amazing school in a way only a graduate can do. Currently, I am enrolled at Mount Royal University in their Bachelor of Arts Sociology degree.
Since I have graduated Calgary Academy, I have been working as a professional actor and a commercial/fashion photographer across the country. Calgary Academy has given me tools that I still use to this day as an alumnus, so I am beyond thrilled to be giving back to the students!

I am now a teacher and a student. I realize CA shaped who I am and the possibilities of what I could become. As an Alumna, it is important to volunteer to strengthen this message and reinforce it in the minds of Calgary Academy students.
I was excited when asked to sit on the Advisory Board as I am passionate about the work CA has done to help students find success within themselves and build confidence that lasts a lifetime. As a volunteer for CA, I will be able to contribute to the positive impact on our students and help empower them to create the type of society I would want my child to grow up in.
As an active volunteer for Calgary Academy, I want to give back to the school that I value so much and stay connected with such a vibrant community. This is important as I can provide insight to what life is like when you leave CA and I am able to motivate currents student to dream big.
As an entrepreneur, public speaker, and professional “teenage butt-kicker,” I owe Calgary Academy for changing my life and providing me with the skills to do what I love. It is more than honour to be able to give back through volunteering at Calgary Academy through this committee and other opportunities provided to me as an alum.
I own my own business called “Clippers n Suds”. I have a huge amount of respect for CA and it’s teachers as I would not have graduated high school if it weren’t for CA. CA grads have a story to tell that is unique. I want to give back to the community that I will be forever grateful to. I know I can make a difference.
