I’m super excited to be given the opportunity to join the Goulbourn Museum team as a Diversity Engagement Coordinator. As a recent graduate from Ryerson University, I have an educational background in Urban and Regional Planning. I’ve also served as a Stakeholder Engagement Lead for a Non – Profit in Calgary, Alberta called Imagine Cities.

So just to talk a little bit about my hobbies and past times, I love sports! Basketball, Hockey and Soccer and my three favourites. Being from Toronto I am indeed a Leafs fan, which I’m sure will get me a little bit of hate and trash talk, but hopefully, our mutual love for the Raptors can make up for that.

This position is an amazing opportunity in many ways, but the one thing I’m most excited about is being able to engage with the community and the rest of the team here at Goulbourn Museum. Just off immediate first impressions, I see that the community is very close-knit, friendly and welcoming, it’s almost like one big family! I’m hoping to merge my planning and stakeholder engagement backgrounds to work with you and produce something that will make the community proud.

I am honoured to be joining the Goulbourn Museum team as one of their Diversity Engagement Coordinators. As a new Ottawa resident, I am looking forward to working so closely with the community and developing a plan to foster positive social outcomes. In this role I hope to gain experience conducting assessments and managing change.

I graduated from McMaster University with a Bachelor’s degree in Social Psychology and a double minor in Mental Health & Addictions and Health & Aging. This multidisciplinary program focused on the complex relationship between individuals and society, and prepared me for a career in identifying social issues and implementing interventions that promote equity. After graduation I started my first degree-related job developing and facilitating programs for an Indigenous organization in Hamilton, where I worked until this past summer when I decided to move to Ottawa.

Outside of work you can likely find me at a coffee shop, on a hike, or taking a nap.

I look forward to working with the museum to solidify a diversity strategy that reflects their commitment to the community.
