As the Manager, Integrated Communications, Kirsty Budd collaborates with colleagues in the Student Success Office (SSO) and across campus to connect with Waterloo students through a variety of channels. Kirsty loves that every day in the SSO is different, and that there is always an opportunity to learn – from both colleagues and students. It should come as no surprise that her favourite spot on campus is the Student Life Centre, a place that is always full of student energy and action. When not in the office, Kirsty likes to cook and surf food blogs for new recipes. She balances her love of food perfectly by spending a lot of time running.
