Ms. Lovegrove has worked as Director of Food and Custodial Services at NCC since April 2001. She holds professional certificates as Nutrition Manager, Executive Housekeeping, and Registered Laundry and Linen Director. Since coming to NCC, Ms. Lovegrove has become a certified trainer of food safety for TrainCan Inc, which has allowed her to train and certify NCC staff along with employees from other agencies outside of NCC.
She shares that her business trip to Hong Kong in 2012 was a significant step in her desire to learn more about foods from every country represented on the NCC campus. Her love for NCC students keeps her motivated and energized at work. She finds working with students from other cultures from around the world interesting and rewarding. During the school year she fills the roles of being a parent, guidance counsellor, and employer to many students - but most of all, their friend.
