- Apart from BuildingAHealthierMcGill, Jos is an avid fiction reader and enjoys doing crossword puzzles. You’ll also often find her hiking in the woods with her dog, Buffy.
- You can find Jos' office in the Brown Student Services Building, Suite 5401, 3600 Rue McTavish.
A highlight of working at the Hub for Jos is, "watching students grow through adversity and develop confidence in themselves."
