I am a passionate community advocate and change agent, and often speak on leadership, connection, and the power of coming together.
I am actively involved in community and am especially passionate about supporting women and millennials. In 2011, I founded Athena Leadership, a young women's leadership development forum based in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
I received a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for outstanding contribution to community development in Canada, was nominated to Canada's Top 40 Under 40, named a top 3 finalist for the Future Leaders of Manitoba Award, listed one of Marketing Magazine's 30 Under 30 brightest young minds in Canada, and have been invited to several Forbes Under 30 Summits (Philadelphia, Boston, and Tel Aviv). In 2016, I proudly served as a speaker for TEDxUMANITOBA, and in 2019 I was honoured to receive a University of Manitoba Distinguished Alumni Awards as the Outstanding Young Alumni.
