Support my charity

I am committed to influencing systemic changes with evidence-based policies that work to enhance social justice and equity for all persons and communities. I founded and led both Helping Youth Through Educational Scholarships (13 years) and Iron Lava Corp (15 years) and have provided leadership to three other NGOs as a member of their boards of directors.

Currently, I am pleased to be working with Discovery House Family Violence Prevention Society.

Selections of places I've worked or volunteered:

Cumming School of Medicine at UCalgary
The Doorway
Calgary Drop-In Centre
Organization of Eastern Caribbean States
Iron Lava Corp
Helping Youth Through Educational Scholarships
Calgary Outlink Centre for Gender & Sexual Diversity
Keys to Recovery
Marda Loop Communities Association

I have fond memories of working as a beekeeper during high school and my first year of undergrad studies.
