I am a friendly and adaptable person with a range of experiences and skills. I enjoy collaborating with individuals and communities of diverse backgrounds to identify shared issues and practical solutions.
I love to learn. After completing a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts, I shifted to the study of communication, earning an MA from Concordia University in Montreal and a PhD from the University of Calgary. More recently, I have taken a series of courses on accessibility issues and the AODA through Ryerson University, and I regularly participate in workshops, courses and professional development opportunities on varied topics.
I am highly organized and easily able to adapt to new groups and environments. I am passionate about participatory and accessible processes and driven by a fundamental commitment to social inclusion and diversity.
I was born and raised in Montreal and I have lived in Calgary, Ottawa, Toronto and West Africa (Accra and Niamey). I have facilitated groups and organized projects at national, regional and local levels. These experiences have allowed me to explore and work in much of the vast and beautiful country that is Canada, though there is still much of it left to discover.
I am fascinated by language and fluently trilingual (English, French and Spanish). I am currently learning Anishinaabemowin and pursuing a personal research and writing project on bilingualism in Canada. In my free time, I enjoy swimming, walking, camping, all the music in the world, and anything having to do with food.
