My story:

I am currently a psychology student studying in downtown Toronto, looking to do the things I deeply care and feel passionate about. I believe the greatest purpose we have in life is connection. Connection with ourselves and others through meaningful conversation. I am offering extremely unique services that will allow you to connect with yourself on a new and deeper level.

Fun facts:

→ I aspire to be a combination of Marie Kondo, Rachel Hollis and Brené Brown (high level organization meets hardcore inspiration meets deep vulnerability)
→ One of my fav topics of conversation is love, boys and romance!!
→ I just started going to counselling for the first time & am finding so much value in it
→ When I am not creative writing something in my life is off!
→ I have created consistent habits in my life that keep me grounded (meditation, journaling, exercise)
→ I want to talk about all the books I'm reading and podcasts I'm listening to!


Professional experiences:

  • Podcast Host at Human to Human
  • Pharmacy Assistant and Front Cashier at Glencade Pharmacy

Educational experiences:

  • High School Diploma - Photography Major at Etobicoke School of the Arts

We reflected on and spoke about things we are proud of, turning points in our loves, our dreams, our quarantine experiences and so much more, all through prompts I was consistently giving each day.
