Brynne attended elementary school here in Edmonton at George H. Luck and completed junior high and high school in the smaller town of Sylvan Lake, Alberta. She is currently in her fourth and final year of her Bachelor of Commerce degree from Queen’s University and has completed her Certificate in Social Impact!
As a student, Brynne works part-time as an equity training facilitator and community ambassador with Queen’s University. While home in Edmonton, she is also a part-time chicken catcher with Supreme Poultry catching, where she catches, loads, and vaccinates free-range chickens on farms around Alberta and Saskatchewan.
Brynne has been recognized by Queen’s University with the Chancellor’s Scholarship and the Kehoe Social Impact Award. Queen’s University has also made Brynne an official Peer Mentor with Student Academic Success Services at Queen’s University.
Brynne is passionate about equal access and opportunities within education. Through her mentoring and tutoring opportunities, she has witnessed the gaps in student supports and hopes to help bridge those gaps some day by ensuring strong, equitable educational supports for every student across the city.
For fun, Brynne enjoys painting, although admittedly isn’t the greatest, in addition to spending time with friends and family.
A few fun questions
Q: What is your favourite children’s book?
A: Geronimo Stilton and The Magic Treehouse were favourites for me when I was starting chapter books, and Harry Potter of course, but the Velveteen Rabbit was a favourite when I was smaller. As a side note, I’ve heard the Wings of Fire series is an amazing recent chase for young chapter book readers, I’ve been meaning to give them a read!
Q: What was your favourite subject in school and why?
A: Math and English when I was younger because I was good at math and loved silent reading time, and social studies when I was older for the discussion and debates. In business school now, I really love my law courses and business ethics/equity-based ones.
Q: Do you have a favorite memory from school?
A: I really remember reading in the library on rainy days and playing in the playground on sunny ones as a special memory when I was younger. In high school, I loved getting to be a part of fundraisers (like with a little table or booth, or going class-to-class) and being involved with other leadership initiatives. I also always appreciated forming connections with teachers and getting to have one-on-one conversations :).
