Hometown: Penticton, BC 

James first came across Quest in 2012 while attending a presentation at his high school. Originally, he had planned to enlist in the Canadian Armed Forces and attend the Royal Military College of Canada in Kingston, Ontario. He fell in love with Quest’s unique academic model.  What he enjoyed most about the university was the ability to design his own degree.

As a student, James was highly involved in Student Life. He served as Minister of Finance for the Students’ Representative Council, started the first campus radio station, and organized the annual Dancing Bear Music & Arts Festival on campus.

After living for a year in Quebec working as an English Language Teaching Assistant, he decided that he didn’t like snow as much as he thought. James returned to BC and began working at Quest as an Admissions Counsellor. James left his role at Quest to explore the world of politics where he worked as the Chief of Staff for a Member of Parliament. James has recently returned to Quest to support the Admissions team in an advisory role for the Admissions and Marketing team.
