I support the brand strategy and communications team at SickKids Foundation, which fundraises for The Hospital for Sick Children. I'm also a board member at both Social Planning Toronto, where we challenge inequity to spark social and policy change, as well as the Community Foundations of Canada, which is the leadership organization for more than 190 community foundations that help drive local solutions for national change.
My work in the non-profit sector and as a journalist, editor, instructor, and marketer has appeared in newspapers, magazines, books, TV news and radio programs, podcasts, and classrooms. I've also overseen editorial teams to support TV shows, podcasts and an outdoor festival in Central Park. From New York City, Abu Dhabi, and Silicon Valley, 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 also led teams of content marketers and designers as well as video producers there during the COVID-19 pandemic.
I am a writer at heart who, over the years, has covered social issues such as food security, human rights advocacy, and supporting marginalized workers for publications including Entrepreneur, Inc., OZY, 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.
