As a registered social worker, I joined the King’s community with the goal of helping students through the exciting, turbulent and unpredictable journey of postsecondary studies. I have experience working in mental health organizations such as Eating Disorders Nova Scotia and Laing House, as well as in student advocacy organizations. I also have personal experience with mental health and bring a compassionate, trauma-informed and solution-focused lens to this work.

I love being part of the King’s community and you will often see me on campus with my border collie mix, Ollie. Feel free to say hello!
