TRU’s hires new marketing co-ordinator

Thompson Rivers University Williams Lake’s new marketing and student recruitment co-ordinator is settling in.

Thompson Rivers University Williams Lake’s new marketing and student recruitment co-ordinator is settling in after taking the position on Aug. 11.

Myrissa Krenzler comes from TRU Kamloops where she most recently worked with TRU World and the short term contract training department.

“Groups of international students come for a variety of different programs and we would give them tailor-made courses,” the 28-year-old said. “The last group was made up of engineers from South Korea who were doing internships in the community.”

Most of the programs ran four weeks, kind of like a summer camp, and gave participants an opportunity to view life in Canada.

Krenzler grew up in Prince George and still has family there.

She said she first moved to Kamloops to pursue the journalism program at TRU because it is the only undergraduate journalism program in Western Canada and graduated in 2009.

She then achieved a Teaching English as a Second Language post bachelor certificate, also at TRU.

“I went and taught English in South Korea for a year in a small rural community about the size of Williams Lake,” she recalled. “I taught grades four, five and six and also taught the teachers after classes.”

Krenzler has also completed a Master’s Degree in applied linguistics, taking her courses online through the University of New England University in Australia.

In her position she will visit schools and work in partnership with the Kamloops campus to promote TRU in Williams Lake as a viable option for starting a university education.

Aside from working, she said she enjoys skiing, swimming and hiking.

“I really like the outdoors,” she smiled.

Krenzler replaces Jacqueline Johnston who relocated to a northern community during the summer to be with her partner.
