Hi! Welcome to my staff page at the ROM. My job at the ROM is incredible, and the team I work with at ROM Biodiversity is awesome.
I'm responsible for developing programs, projects and partnerships that help people understand and conserve biodiversity. I work with everyone at the ROM, from the Department of Natural History, Education, Marketing and Communication, Web and Print Media, and Programs, to all other ROM Centre's of Discovery, the ROM Governors and the ROM Executive team. My role is help internal teams work with each other toward unified and focused goals, and to represent the Centre of Discovery in Biodiversity with all external partners.
I grew up in Huntsville, Ontario on the doorstep of Algonquin Park, and have been living in Toronto for the last eight years. I love the outdoors, connecting people to wildlife and wild spaces - and I'm a big fan of change.
Drop me a note in the Contact section below with any comments, questions or possible collaborations.
