Dr. Weischedel started teaching within the Faculty of Management at The University of British Columbia's Okanagan campus in 2008. At that point, a new E Commerce course was introduced to the Business Program that Dr. Weischedel designed and implemented.

Dr. Weischedel also teaches locally at Okanagan College and conducts consulting for online marketing and web analytics. She works as an online tutor for E Commerce and has also recently designed an online E Commerce course for BC Open Learning.

Dr. Weischedel has lived, studied and worked in various countries; an experience that gives her a unique perspective on cultures and how cultural differences affect learning and studying. This expansion of horizon allows her to approach marketing and management topics from an international angle, something that is critical for the increasingly global markets.

Outside of academia, Dr. Weischedel can often be found training for, racing, organizing or officiating triathlons. She also enjoys travelling and most every outdoor adventure, especially if it involves mountains.
