I was born in Montreal, Canada and moved to Burnaby in elementary school. I come from a mixed-race background and have enjoyed growing up in a multigenerational household. I graduated from Simon Fraser University with a Bachelors in geography and political science along with a certificate in urban studies. I have remained passionate about urban issues since graduating, and I am especially interested in the intersectionality of social issues and the environment at a municipal level.
Currently, I work for the səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Outside of work, I am the president of Force of Nature Alliance, a grassroots environmental group in Metro Vancouver. This involves organizing with local citizens, community leaders, and elected officials to reduce carbon emissions and bring about positive environmental change. I also serve on the board of directors for KEATCA, a public post-secondary education endowment fund that supports individuals in Canada living below the poverty line through annual grant opportunities.
I approach organizing through networking and collaborating to find ways of supporting one another. I am passionate about building connections and strongly believe in finding common ground. If you ever want to connect and explore opportunities to collaborate, send me an email!
