She holds a Master in Urban and International Development at University of Toronto where she focused her studies on food security, creation care, and using urban agriculture to build a sense of community.
She has worked with A Rocha Canada to develop an Earth to Table program, in partnership with Hamilton Victory Gardens. This program successfully engaged newcomers in gardening and cooking workshops.

She is excited to work in Peel region to foster food literacy, accessibility, and excitement around local food.
