Mr. Patrick Cloutier
University Success Coach
Having both a Master’s and Bachelor’s degree in Education from the University of Sherbrooke, I have been a career counsellor for the last 20 years. After being involved with individuals from many different backgrounds (high school and university students, recruiting firms, insurance companies), I have developed a broad expertise and knowledge to enrich my practice. I have a passion for helping others achieve their goals, develop their full potential and be successful both in their personal and professional lives. There are many things you can do to improve and be successful by starting to know who you are, what you want and where you are going.
From your integration at university to your graduation, I am here to help you.
