I am a software engineer with a passion for Equity, Diversity, and Belonging. I have a BSc in Psychology and Neuroscience from the University of Guelph, where I specialized in Women’s Health and Wellness, while contributing to mental health policy and stigma reduction on campus. After graduation, I became introduced to the world of tech through a Venture for Canada fellowship, and eventually returned to school for a Computer Science degree. I am passionate about people, policy, and programming, and can’t wait to share my passion with you!

I have worked with a wide range of organizations including York University’s Women in Computer Science and Engineering, Lassonde School of Engineering’s Bergeron Entrepreneurs in Science and Technology (BEST) Program, EZ CPD, Ontario Deputy Judges Association, FinanceIt, and OneEleven. I co-host a mental health podcast called High Functioning, where I share my own personal experiences with mental illness. I am based out of Downtown Toronto, and love exploring all this city has to offer!
