Find inspiration for your future

When Danielle Tom joined us at VIU, she didn't know where she wanted her career to go. Today she's inspired to go all the way to the top of her field. Danielle plans to earn her Red Seal endorsement in baking so she can start her own business. 

When Danielle was finishing up her first year she told us

 "These 10 months have come and gone so fast, and our chefs were beyond amazingly helpful."
