This year we are continuing our series of interviewing faculty and staff members with the hope that students can get to know a bit more about who they are and what they do. This time I had the privilege of connecting with Kim Lammers, an academic advisor here at Redeemer.
Where are you from? I am from Grimsby, Ontario.
How long have you worked at Redeemer? I have worked at Redeemer for nine years.
What is the most enjoyable part of your job? Meeting with students during the spring course registration period. I like the program planning that comes with the spring course registration period, determining how all the requirements of a student’s program can be met during their years at Redeemer.
What’s your favourite memory from working at Redeemer? Each year’s Graduation Day has its own special memories. Graduating with a bachelor’s degree is a significant accomplishment and I like to celebrate that accomplishment with the graduates every May.
What do you do in your spare time? Do you have any hobbies? I like to read, watch sports, visit with my nephews, catch up with friends, shop, plan trips & travel.
What are some places you have travelled to? I love travelling in Europe. I have visited places in England, Ireland, Scotland, Denmark, Sweden, Spain, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Croatia, Greece, and the Czech Republic. My favourite countries to visit are England and Italy.
Why do you love to travel? I majored in History and English Literature for my undergraduate degree so travelling in Europe allows me to experience places that I read about as an undergraduate student. When I graduated from teacher’s college, I moved to England and taught there for 2+ years which gave me a great opportunity to travel extensively in Europe. I still love to travel there whenever I can!
If you were given a week vacation to do whatever you want, what would you do? I would probably book a trip where I could relax by the beach.
