Cydney is a life-long Halifax resident and an alumna of Mount Allison University, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science, but spent most of her time doing extra-curriculars. Her professional experience includes work in both the public and private sectors, primarily in documentation, software testing, communications and project work. On weekends, she teaches dance to children.
In her time at Schulich, she has represented students on the faculty's Appointments Committee, worked with Pro Bono, and volunteered with several student societies, conferences, and events. She volunteers with the Record Suspension & Vital Statistics Clinic hosted by the Elizabeth Fry Society of Mainland Nova Scotia, and leads a fundraising project to sponsor criminal record suspension application fees for marginalized women. To date, this project has raised more than $4200.
Cydney's portfolio as VP Student Life includes overseeing Schulich's many student societies, handling communications and social media, and planning events for students.
