I'm a journalist and former columnist for CBC Radio and Television Canada, a passionate Better World Scout, abolitionist and soccer mum committed to ending poverty and human suffering through women's empowerment, education and the end of human trafficking.
I invest myself into projects and connections that give people a chance to become self-sufficient and live an honourable life.
I believe in the power of social entrepreneurship/investing.
I believe a hand up is better than a hand out & that it needs to be both transparent and accountable.
I believe that planting many seeds of uplift in small and meaningful ways helps people become self-sustaining and strengthens the social and economic fabric of communities.
I believe ending poverty depends on empowering and educating women who are denied rights and a voice.
I believe every child deserves the opportunity to be safe and thrive in spite of race, gender, cultural or economic conditions.
I believe my voice is a gift meant to be given in the service of people who do not have one.
I'm passionate about
finding small, simple ways that technology makes it easier for people to collaborate to identify needs, solve problems and share resources and knowledge broadly.
