Meet Your Student Success Coordinator

My name is Apurva and I used to live in London UK, working predominantly in fundraising in the non-profit sector. I recently moved back to Canada and did some time with WorkBC where I learned a lot about what employees are looking for and how to help someone jumpstart their career. I wanted to switch to the education sector. So, I applied to Ashton because I really like the courses that they have on offer and that they focus on catering to the labour market demands. I want to use my skills to support and guide the students to get the most out of their time at Ashton.
