After being a head of house at Ridley College for 12 years, Vera made the move to Lakefield College School to take up residence in Lower Colebrook for 14 years and then moved again to Uplands House where she is today. This year, Uplands became a co-ed house with six Grade 9 and three Grade 10 boys living on the lower level and 17 girls located on the upper level.
Along with her head of house responsibilities, Vera is also Director of Student Services and the travel co-ordinator. She is very much in the centre of student life helping grad students plan Friday and Saturday spirit/social events, spirit week, day trips, carnivals and Paper House events, in addition to organizing travel for long weekends and breaks. During the fall, she is involved with the Multi Sport Recreational activity which includes, but not limited to, recreational tennis, table tennis, badminton, frisbee golf, ultimate frisbee and swimming at Trent University. She loves spending time with her girls and boys in Uplands especially cooking, having tea times, chats and being a part of their daily lives as they navigate their adolescent journey at LCS. For Vera, the supportive community, the appreciation for the beautiful outdoor campus, event planning and the values of the school make her job truly enjoyable.
