The universe is always presenting opportunities your way, it’s up to you to take advantage of them. My philosophy in life has taken me to experience a wide variety of work in Costa Rica, Tanzania, and in Toronto. Most of my experience to date is with the not-for-profit sector supporting environmental projects, newcomer service agencies, and most recently women entrepreneurship programs. In the midst of all this, I decided to pursue a Master’s in Urban Planning at Ryerson University and currently intern at a land use planning consulting firm.
