- BJ / 80
A proud Carleton alumna, Gilbert is a testament to the opportunities that abound when a solid university education is coupled with determination to succeed and commitment to one’s alma mater.
Having won numerous accolades throughout her career, Gilbert served as a senior producer with the Discovery Channel in Toronto before joining the Nature Conservancy of Canada as Chief Communications Officer in 2008. This same level of commitment to her career is also demonstrated in her unflagging support of Carleton University.
In her own words, “There are a lot of things in life that I would not have been able to achieve had I not received the education I received. Because Carleton served me so well, I think it is beholden on me to give back what I can.”
She is the current President of the Carleton University Alumni Association after having served as the CUAA Vice-President Chapters, as well as on the university’s president’s advisory councils in both Toronto and Halifax.
