I was born and raised in Thunder Bay, Ontario, where I spent most of my time reading or playing with my siblings. I spent my winters hibernating and my summers camping every weekend with my family at Sibley Provincial Park (now known as Sleeping Giant Provincial Park).

I moved to Toronto to attend Glendon College, the bilingual campus of York University, where I received my degree in English, with a minor in Theatre.

After graduating, I spent several years working in financial services (in varied roles including Client Service Representative and Editor).  I then left my job at an investment bank to pursue a career in the non-profit sector. I have extensive volunteer experience (starting in elementary school) and I felt that I needed a change.

I was hired by Camp Quality Canada, an organization for which I had volunteered, as its National Facilitator, Training & Marketing. I spent the next two years reworking the organization’s marketing materials (including its website), coordinating special events and starting its newest location, Camp Quality Manitoba.

I particularly enjoyed the fundraising aspect of my job, but felt that I needed further education to be a more effective and efficient fundraiser so enrolled in Humber’s Fundraising & Volunteer Management Postgraduate Program and graduated with Honours in 2006.

After completing my internship at University of Oxford, I was offered a full-time position and spent almost 2 years in progressively responsible positions.  Upon returning to Canada, I accepted a job as the Manager of Annual Giving at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto.

I am currently on maternity leave and enjoying every moment with my son, Jack!
