Hire me

Originally from British Columbia, my time spent growing up outdoors immersed in the beautiful wilderness of the Canadian west coast sparked my keen interest in the Veterinary Sciences as well as Ecological and Wildlife Conservation. Graduating from St. Michaels University School with various arts and science Honors recognitions, I am now currently pursuing a Biological Science Honors Undergraduate degree at University of Guelph. My values lie in highlighting the importance of public communications to ultimately improve public awareness of the animal, ecosystem, and human health relationship, also known as the OneHealth approach to disease prevention and conservation. My study focuses involve ecology, zoology, and environmental conservation.

As a student I am actively involved the ecological and environmental sciences, with previous experience working as an office and field assistant for Ecosystem Recovery Inc., which has sparked my interest for ecosystem restoration and sustainable development.

I have a well established background in the visual and performing arts, a keen sense for creative writing and storytelling, and enjoy spending my spare time journaling and illustrating.
