About Me

I am a Canadian woman currently living in the UK with a young daughter; a healthy work-life balance is important to me. I have become a better team player with maturity, though my experience allows me to thrive in deep-dive challenges, pushing boundaries with innovation and personal productivity. I believe that style and design are important, however, I cannot help but feel better inspired with clear functional goals. Honesty and kindness are core values that I hold in high regard, though it is skepticism that keeps me sharp.
