What part of your job brings you the most energy? Why?

Collaborating on projects and learning from my coworkers energizes me. I am surrounded by smart, engaging and creative minds, who continually challenge my patterns of thinking and push me out of my comfort zone. 

What are the beliefs that drive the way you think/make decisions? 

Always ask, “why?” This question doesn’t get the credit it deserves. “Why” has the power to clarify, to empower and to provide fresh perspective.

What are your favourite things to do outside of work?

I try to surround myself with my family and friends as much as possible, who make me feel great and give me positive energy. Whether we are cooking together, hanging out in Trinity Bellwoods, or checking out a new restaurant, being surrounded by those important to me brings me joy. I am also a very restless individual, so I love keeping myself active and being outside as much as possible.

What would you put on a billboard?
