William has been fortunate to study in three countries and volunteer in six, all in the name of sport. He comes to the department having graduated from the Sports Administration program.

Born and raised in Canada, William earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Waterloo, and a Master of Arts degree from Wayne State. He completed 80% of his undergraduate and 100% of his graduate degrees online, making a unique learning experience. William also had the privilege of being selected by the Canadian Olympic Committee, to attend the International Olympic Academy in Olympia, Greece, and study the Olympic Movement with students from over 100 countries.

Prior to his studies, William was a national champion figure skater. He gives back to his sport now as a judge, referee, technical specialist, technical controller, and evaluator at competitions and test sessions in both the U.S. and Canada. Officiating in figure skating is a completely volunteer position.

Thinking of volunteering, he has volunteered with the Canadian Olympic Committee at the past four Olympic Games (Vancouver, Canada; London, England; Sochi, Russia, and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), and for the COC and the organizing committee (roller figure skating and indoor volleyball) at the Pan American Games in Toronto, Canada. William has also volunteered at seven international/national figure skating competitions.

William previously held a faculty position at St. Clair College, Canada, teaching courses in the pre-health sciences, hospitality, and fitness and health training programs.
