Two-minute interview

Name: Laura Branchaud
Department: Department
of University Safety
Position: Community
Liaison Officer

Why does your job make a difference?

As Community Liaison Officer and a crime prevention specialist, my role is to provide personal safety awareness and crime reduction advice to the university community. This is accomplished through the publication of the safety department’s information brochures, a variety of safety-oriented presentations to staff, student groups and faculty in addition to conducting safety/security audits as requested.

What inspires you about your job?

The fact that I get to meet and work with a wonderful cross-section of people since Carleton University has such a diverse community. Plus, I also have the opportunity to continually learn new things and utilize my communication and problem-solving skills.

What are your hobbies?

I play hockey and golf as well as run and do a bit of weight training throughout the year to keep fit. I also like to exercise my brain reading (mainly crime fiction), doing the Sunday crossword and the occasional jigsaw puzzle.
