Faculty & Staff


Mandy Gallant

Administrative Assistant

“My favourite part would be interacting with all the staff, and I get to interact with a lot of students too. I get to know the hub of what is going on here at the College.”

Mandy Gallant is the Academic Administrative Assistant. She focuses on assisting the Dean and the Director, as well as faculty, staff and students as needed. She contributes to scheduling and many other aspects for the entire College.

Prior to becoming a key part of the College in 2010, Mandy worked in many units within the Department of Social Development, including Post-Adoption, Payroll & Benefits, Human Resources, and Records Management. In the past, she managed high level accounts for American company Icon.

Mandy is known for her adaptability and for learning new systems with relative ease. In the HR Department at Social Development, having received no training from the previous employee in her position, she nonetheless learned a very cumbersome program without assistance and managed to pull out reports needed by the Legislative Assembly. At NBCCD, she was heavily involved in testing and configuration of Blackbaud, the student information management system, and identifying ways it could be of use to the NBCCD staff.

Mandy was born in England, and has since travelled all over the world. She loves collecting large rocks and spending time outdoors at her country home. With her partner, she loves to design and build furniture and accessories for their yard and house. She is a poet and a budding painter.

Mandy’s Superpower: She can organize anything and anyone.
