Please Welcome Our New Staff!

Science Atlantic is happy to welcome two new students for the 2021 Summer semester. Please read on to learn more about the two new additions to our team, and the projects they will be working on. 

Shruti Sharma

Project and Information Management Assistant

Shruti is an international student at Saint Mary’s University, completing a Bachelor of Commerce degree with a major in Finance and Entrepreneurship. Her interest in learning about innovative start-up companies and the public equity market is what led to her decision in pursuing this unconventional combination of majors.

Shruti has diverse experience across private and post-secondary sectors through working closely with entrepreneurs and students, while learning about the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Nova Scotia. Within Shruti’s third co-op work term, she will help build upon the company’s value proposition by applying her knowledge of entrepreneurship, and supporting the strategic planning process. As a Project and Information Management Assistant, her focus is on organizing and analyzing information from various sources to make processes more easily accessible to users. This will also enable a more efficient workflow for the organization.

Taylor Van Stiphout

Communications and Member Engagement Assistant

Taylor is now heading into her fourth year at Dalhousie University, completing a Bachelor of Commerce Co-op Degree. She chose this program in hopes of gaining a stronger understanding for the marketing field, and acquiring physical workplace experience throughout her three co-op placements. With a passion for creative design, social media development, and data analytics, Taylor is enthusiastic about expanding her knowledge in each field. 

Taylor is looking forward to completing her final co-op placement at Science Atlantic as a Communications and Member Engagement Assistant. Within this role, she is eager to implement her marketing knowledge and software background to help improve the organization’s overall community engagement. With several exciting projects in the near future, including the planning of the organization’s 60th Anniversary, Taylor hopes to provide a fresh perspective on the implementation and planning of each process.
