Helping great ideas thrive.

I want to live in a world where we harness the power of research to drive meaningful change.

Whatever we call it – knowledge translation, mobilization, transfer, etc. – I’m fascinated by the intersections between practical knowledge, research, communication and action.

I love learning

(And lamp).


When I was little, my favourite day of the year was the first day of school. Luckily, being a hard-working nerd has some perks: I’ve won more than 20 major scholarships and awards for academic excellence. Academic CV.

In my Bachelor’s of Journalism at Carleton, I learned how to tell compelling stories. It was a steep learning curve, discovering how to handle tight deadlines, take constructive criticism, and work with fantastic groups. I got practical training producing video, writing diverse print stories, and experimenting with other storytelling formats. And, the hard work paid off – I graduated top of my class.

Then, I picked up and moved to Vancouver for my Master’s in Arts, at SFU’s School of Communication. There, I studied the process of academics partnering with government, industy, and community groups to help do research that has a positive impact in the real world.
