Chamula has successfully combined her university degree in environment research studies with her post-graduate studies at Humber in fundraising and volunteer management to do work that she is passionate about. Before enrolling at Humber she was working as a HR co-ordinator for a software company, far away from the environmental field she was hoping to enter. “Taking the Humber program really got me right back on track with being in the environment field because it gave me the opportunit to do my internship with an environmental organization that I liked and then continue with fundraising into that.”
Chamula did her final year internship with Environmental Defense which led to her getting a job with Ontario Nature. She is now the foundation and corporate giving co-ordinator at Ontario Nature and is involved in the full grant cycle which keeps the organization running.
