Oh, hello there.
Born and raised in Northern New Brunswick, the East Coast will always hold a special place in my heart. I attended Mount Allison University to complete my undergraduate degree with a concentration in economics. There, I was Students’ Union President, met my partner, and adopted my first dog, a golden retriever named Captain. Following graduation, I moved to the the big ol’ city of Toronto for the Master’s of Design in Strategic Foresight and Innovation program at OCAD University. Now, having adopted another golden, Marvel, and finishing my thesis on collaborative partnerships for social innovation, I’m making my way into the design, strategy and innovation world.
Having specialized in human centred design and behavioural economics, my experiences are eclectic; combining many areas like project management, policy advocacy, research and organizational strategy design. I have a strong, interdisciplinary understanding of innovation design and bring a unique blend of systems and future thinking to strategy development. Even now, early in my career, I have a lot of confidence thatI have have the skills necessary to rise to any challenge.
Things I Love
I have two golden retrievers who I love more than anything! Their names are Captain and Marvel - yes, after the comics
I love to exercise. I workout 6+ times a week doing group-based workouts at Myodetox!
RuPaul’s Drag Race
I’ve watched every single episode at least twice. Quiz me, and i can most likely tell you who won a lip sync.
I love sci-fi novels like Paradox Bound by Peter Clines, Vox by Christina Dalcher and The Genius Plague by David Walton.
I have a huge comic book collection with over 125 volumes! And I’ve seen almost every Marvel movie on opening night.
I love playing the classic Nintendo video games franchises, like Pokémon, Mario, Zelda, and Smash Bross
