Much more than nibbles and PowerPoint presentations, Springboard events fulfil our mandate to facilitate researcher and industry engagement. The success of these events start and end with good organization and with Event Coordinator Katie Kushner at the helm, the endless details are in capable hands. Working closely with the nineteen member institutions, industry partners and other stakeholders, Katie coordinates all the behind-the-scene details that ensure a smooth execution of the more than twenty events happening annually across Atlantic Canada.
With a Bachelor of Arts in International Development and Business, Katie has a valuable insider’s perspective on Springboard, having previously fulfilled the all-encompassing role of Office Manager.
When she's not saving the day at Springboard, Katie is saving the game as a field hockey goalie and is also involved with Fusion Halifax.
