About

My story:

Diversity and inclusion isn't something we "achieve"; it's something we work to embody everyday by interrogating the world around us, and using our positions of power, authority, trust, and awareness to raise the voices of others and to provide them with opportunities for meaningful engagement.

After managing Canada's largest University Diversity program, I set out to combine two of the things I cared about the most: diversity & inclusion education and digital design.

With over 10 years of experience behind me, I founded my own design & consulting agency focused eliminating barriers to inclusion through the use of smart, accessible and attractive design - or simply, what I call "Designing with Empathy".

My approach is based on the values of:

> EQUITY - in policy, practice and position
> DIVERSITY - of people & perspectives
> INCLUSION - by design, via power, voice, & organizational culture

I believe that "success" is an ever-shifting goal post, and I strive to provide continuous and proactive education to my clients and colleagues.

Fun facts:

> I have Tetrachromancy (aka "Super Vision"). It basically means that I can see more colours than the average person. As a designer, this is a blessing and a curse - especially when tasked with picking between 150 shades of "the same" grey.

> Hiking is my life's passion. If I could live in the woods of the Pacific North West as a nomad forever, I probably would. But I also like internet.

> I only learned how to ride a bike at the age of 25. I consider it to be one of the most humbling experiences of my life.
