Building lives with dignity
I create opportunities and play with ideas. I dig building authentic communities and working cultures. I value multiple intelligences, including rational, emotional, ecological, cultural, and artistic – and I like to solve problems that require them. I think about ethics and language a lot. I practice empathy, gratitude, radical honesty, systems thinking, and critical reflection. I like to feel connected to my values. I like to use my superpowers for good.My mission is to be helpful and kind. I am proudly interdisciplinary. I like questions that make me challenge my worldview. I like clear writing and language. I celebrate diversity. I like to work with excellence. I try to tell you what I think you need to hear, rather than what you want to hear. I don’t like small talk, or wasted time. I endeavour to own my mistakes, and value constructive criticism. You might get a little sass.I have spent my career working with and building international communities. Skilled in research, community building, report writing, training, editing, recruitment, and public speaking. Strong program and project management professional with a Master’s Degree in international development, ethics, anthropology, and global health, from the University of British Columbia.Come talk to me. Let’s build the world we want to live in.
