After completing an Interdisciplinary degree in English, Art History and Psychology at UBC, I began writing for online publications and working in content marketing. Over a seven year period, I worked with local and multinational businesses. During this time, I contributed to the growth of businesses that are working to solve complex social and environmental challenges. Throughout these experiences, I wondered what schools could do to better prepare students for a world that is rapidly changing and industries that are rapidly innovating.

In 2016, I returned to university and studied high school education. I became a certified teacher in Vancouver BC and began teaching in 2017. During my time as a teacher, I  have been fascinated by how students relate to technology and how they are flooded with information through multiple media platforms. Currently, I am teaching at Britannia Secondary. I am interested in how we can create inclusive classrooms and strengthen critical thinking skills.
