I support our marketing and equity, diversity, and inclusion teams at SickKids Foundation, which fundraises for The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids). I'm also a board member at both Social Planning Toronto, which challenges inequity to spark social and policy change, and Community Foundations of Canada, which supports more than 200 foundations that drive local solutions for national change.
My work in the non-profit sector and as a journalist, editor, instructor, and tech marketer has appeared in newspapers, magazines, books, a TV show, blogs, vlogs, TV news and radio programs, a festival in Central Park, classrooms, and an award-nominated podcast. When I worked in New York City, Silicon Valley, and Abu Dhabi, I helped manage global newsrooms of multimedia correspondents during tumultuous transitions such as the Arab Spring and 2016 U.S. presidential election. In Toronto, I documented Shopify's impact and growth into Canada's most valuable company and led teams of content marketers, video producers, and content designers there during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Still, I'm a writer at heart. I've advocated for social change—including food security, human rights protection, and supporting marginalized workers—through publications including Entrepreneur, Inc., Yahoo, and HuffPost. I also spent eight months reporting for The Wall Street Journal's “Waste Lands” series, which revisited the little-noticed aftermath of the U.S. nuclear-arms buildup and became a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize.
