I am a strategic communications and labour relations professional by trade, and have built a public profile as a community leader and non-profit executive.
Through leading community, social service and arts organizations, as well as advocacy campaigns, I have played a key role in securing tens of millions of dollars for initiatives that make Toronto a better city. My involvement has included winning funding for public libraries and programs for at-risk youth in Toronto, leading a capital campaign that revitalized a local drop-in centre for homeless and socially isolated people, securing a tax on billboards to fund community and public art programs, and establishing a permanent transit discount for Toronto’s college and university students.
Currently employed as the Communications Officer for the Society of Energy Professionals, I am pursuing a Bachelor of Public Administration and Governance at Ryerson University on a part-time basis. I was selected as a Global Shaper by the World Economic Forum in 2011.
