Matthew Guy

Matthew GuyNow living in Nova Scotia, Canada, I grew up near Bury St. Edmunds in England until I moved to Leeds to become a student.

I graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University (now Leeds Beckett University) with a Bachelor of Arts with honours and became a member (and later a Fellow) of the Chartered Institute of Housing.

In 2006 after a lot of thought we moved to Nova Scotia in Canada.

Having worked in student housing in England, I worked for nine years for one of Canada’s top undergraduate universities.

In September 2016 I became Director of Student Success on a small campus of a larger Canadian university.

I am also the current President of the  Atlantic Association of College and University Student Services (AACUSS).

I have previously been a Vice President in my Students’ Union, a volunteer Director of a non-profit housing organisation, set up a community website, been an Annapolis River Guardian  as well as being part of many social and political campaigns. I am currently Vice-President of the Annapolis NDP, and a member of the NSNDP Executive.

I live with my husband, our two sons, two cats, two dogs, and previously been home to varying numbers of chickens and a lame duck (he had only one foot).

Thank you for stopping by and please feel free to send me a message or a tweet.
