Objective

I’m a passionate communicator working to improve democratic values and citizen engagement in Canadian politics. I am building a career in digital policy, with a focus on civic and youth engagement in democracy.

I am excited to graduate in June 2017 from a Joint Honours Bachelor of Social Sciences in Communication and Political Science, with Co-op from the University of Ottawa. Having participated in four fulfilling Co-operative Education terms, held part-time work during academic semesters, and a variety of career-track volunteer roles; I am excited to move forward in a rewarding career.

What I Do ?

With an eye for opportunities for innovation, I seize the chance to connect Canadians and stakeholders with their governments. Blending civil service with civil society, I work to integrate new technology with traditional governance. As a passionate communicator, I incorporate strategic communication planning to every project and challenge.

I’m passionate about creating evidence-based policy and sharing solutions, and moving Canada towards an inclusive and progressive digital government.

I am a youth engagement activist, I seek opportunities for young Canadians to be represented in politics and community action.
