I am joining BrainBoost with a history of working with youth and families from varied backgrounds. I have worked with newcomers and refugees, as well as youth experiencing homelessness and substance use issues. My focus has always been to meet youth with a strength based approach. As Program Manager, my drive lies in amplifying youth voices and assisting them in navigating their paths toward achieving goals and discovering passions. Drawing from personal experience I grappled with social anxiety during school which impacted my grades and confidence. As part of BrainBoost, I believe in alleviating school-related anxieties and fostering a safe haven for diverse learners as well as building a fun and supportive community. Beyond Brainboost, my life is adorned by an extremely fluffy companion, Roscoe, and the delightful chaos brought by my two kids. My downtime is filled with board games, photography, indulging in the magic of reading with Taylor Swift playing in the background.
