Where would you like to live if you could live anywhere? I would love to live somewhere that I can wake up to the sound of the waves and run my feet through the warm sand every day.

What is your favourite sound?  I love listening to the sound of rain with a cup of coffee in my hand.

What would you like to tell prospective applicants to our program? I was pleasantly surprised with the collegiality of the faculty. Our program is relatively small which gives it a family feel and allows you to get to know people on a deeper level. Our staff are friendly, approachable, and eager to share their knowledge.
