 I am a scientist, speaker, coach, facilitator and a passionate advocate for diversity and inclusion. I believe in a world where innovation and productivity are driven by equitable workplaces.
In 2015, after a decade of working with scientists across North America in the biopharmaceutical industry, I shifted my focus from creating novel scientific products to creating a vibrant, sustainable workplace ecosystem that enables such products. My background in science allows me to combine the latest discoveries in neuroscience with best practices in coaching to achieve lasting behavioural change.

My career journey has given me a deep appreciation for scientists as well as the barriers which underrepresented groups face in entering and flourishing in STEM fields. In 2018, motivated by personal experiences, I took part in the Immigrant and International Women in Science (IWS Network), with the mission to empower this incredible demographic to thrive as valued contributors to the Canadian economy.
