I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Conflict Studies and Business from the University of Waterloo and my Master's of Cultural Analysis and Social Theory from Wilfred Laurier University. I completed my Master's thesis on how anti-Black racism and DEI initiatives impact the visibility of Black women in workplaces. I apply my lived experience as a Black woman and professional experience gained through my education and various projects at Lunaria to my DEI work. I specialize in helping organizations design, implement and grow a data-driven DEI strategy. My processes are informed by anti-oppressive research practices, anti-racism and intersectionality. I enjoy working with various stakeholders to craft DEI strategies driven by team member feedback and created to make meaningful change.
My thoughts, reflections and insights
I have always been interested in designing solutions that create opportunities people to grow. I am honoured and grateful that I get to engage in meaningful DEI work where I am applying my skillset and learning alongside other practitioners. Beyond work I live out my commitments as a board member at YWCA Kitchener-Waterloo and a support line volunteer at the Sexual Assault Support Centre Waterloo. In my personal time I like hiking with my dog, painting, DIY projects and comedy.
