Introducing Joelene Whare

Meet Joelene Whare, our enthusiastic new Student Services Adviser.

Sometimes our students love it so much at ITC that they never want to leave! This was the case with Joelene Whare, our brilliant new Student Services Advisor (and former student). Below, she shares a bit about herself and her career journey so far.
