Engineering Local Wellness Advisor (LWA)
Hi, I am Virginie, your Engineering LWA. I am a licensed mental health clinician embedded within the Faculty of Engineering. I have an extensive background, recently I worked and lived in the Inuit community for two years. You can think of me as a wellness expert and a liason between the Faculty and Student Services. I am available for one-on-one meetings and skills-based wellness workshops.
