Kristine Thody

Associate Director, Alumni Careers



"I feel very lucky to have had Veronica as my career coach in university. She is dedicated, supportive, and truly passionate about bringing out the best in her students. Today she continues to help me and other alumni with our career paths. I cannot thank Veronica enough for the guidance she has provided me with over the years. I highly recommend her for her expertise in delivering coaching and her genuine interest in professional development."

Miranda Wen

"Veronica approached with me with a genuine passion to help which allowed me to open up and share personal concerns. Her welcoming attitude and willingness to listen allowed us to come up with a detailed professional plan. It opened many opportunities and ultimately led me to a position at Xerox."

Joseph Hong
Account Executive

"I came to Kristine looking to make a move forward in my career. From the first, she was insightful and full of wisdom about how to navigate the increasingly tricky world of job hunting. She not only had great answers to all of my questions, anxieties and worries, she asked incisive questions herself that forced me to reflect on what I really wanted from my career. Anyone looking to make a leap forward in their professional life would be lucky to work with Kristine and have her in their corner."

Anges Gulbinowicz
Manager Travel Insurance Product Development 

"I have been coached by Kristine since 2014 and have told countless people of the benefit I have received from her guidance. Kristine has provided me with the tools needed to fine tune my resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile as well as negotiation strategies. Kristine’s warm personality and ability to coach me to recognize and uncover my value and potential has increased my confidence and left me feeling and knowing I can achieve anything! I would not be where I am without Kristine’s coaching and guidance."
