I was born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario, a city most known for its abundance of steel and Tim Horton’s. I left the roost to study at Queen’s University and at The London School of Economics.

In 2011 I setup Hackney Laces, a community club for girls in East London. Alongside eight brilliant women, our three sister clubs (Limehouse, South London and Manchester) and an army of supporters, we’re on a mission to get as many girls and women playing football as possible – raising aspirations along the way.

Ever since I was young, I’ve always been driven by a social conscience (I have my mother to thank for that). So in my career I’ve aspired to work for organizations serious about making change. I also like talking about these things. If you’d like to hear my musings, listen to my brilliant friend Zoë as we navigate all things ethics on the This Because Podcast.

I spend my days working at Public, a social impact agency based in Toronto.
