Kelli Wheatley

Virtual Recruitment Officer, Ryerson University

Kelli is a Virtual Recruitment Officer at Ryerson University and an enthusiastic member of the Ryerson Ramily. Her portfolio is centred around hosting webinars for prospective students and applicants, but she also helps to curate Ryerson’s profile on digital platforms and acts as an extra set of eyes on copy for print and digital publications.

Kelli came to Ryerson after doing her undergraduate degree and working in admissions in the US, so when she’s not live on Zoom or determining if a comma follows branding guidelines, she’s likely sharing articles comparing the Canadian and American higher education systems over Slack. She comes in handy when the student recruitment office needs a contact south of the border, but is really looking forward to her second #PSEWEB conference this year to dive further into newer fields like web and design.

Kelli’s primary goal in the workplace is to make information more easily accessible to students, thus removing any potential barriers to their success. Her social accounts are equally wholesome: @kelliwheatz on Instagram features loved ones (including Eggy the Ram) and various bodies of water, and the same handle on Twitter occasionally retweets pictures of the Ryerson therapy dogs.
