My Profile

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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 my Bachelor’s of Fine Arts, I shifted to the study of communications, earning an MA from Concordia University in Montreal and a PhD from the University of Calgary. More recently, I have taken courses on accessibility issues and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) through Ryerson University, and a number of applied workshops in social media, WordPress and podcasting.

I was born and raised in Montreal, a city that I adore and that I still get to visit frequently. After spending time in Calgary, West Africa and Toronto, I now reside in Ottawa. 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. Bitten by the wanderlust bug at a young age, I am always happy to travel for work and/or pleasure.

I am fascinated by language and fluently trilingual (English, French and Spanish). In my free time, I enjoy swimming, walking, camping, music from the 70s and anything having to do with food.
