Katrina Weesies

Senior Marketing and Communications Intern

After successfully being part of the marketing team for UVIC Phoenix Theatre’s spring show, I solidified that I needed to embark on a new academic journey. As a result, I am now working towards a Communications degree at SFU. In addition, during my time co-leading Hope Community Church’s summer camp and watching the number of children attending the camp double by the end of the summer, my passion to be a part of something bigger that serves a greater purpose was ignited.

As a gal from the Vancouver area, I love hiking, exploring the lush and beautiful nature around me, and finding new family-owned businesses. When I’m not spending days surrounded by trees and lakes, I can most likely be found in thrift stores or watching films from directors like Wes Anderson and Martin Scorsese. However, my most profound passion is orca whales… I could talk about them for hours and, given a chance, absolutely will.
