I help build healthy and vibrant communities.
I am a Health Promoter and the Scarborough Cycles Coordinator at Access Alliance, a community health centre with three locations in Toronto.
I also occasionally teach at the University of Toronto Scarborough in the Department of Human Geography.
I work to increase suburban cycling by building capacity and addressing barriers. I have extensive experience conceptualizing, completing, and evaluating community projects, and appreciate working on-the-ground at the neighbourhood scale.
I love riding my bike. It keeps me healthy, reduces both my carbon footprint and overall stress level. Some of my fondest memories are closely tied to my affection of being on two wheels.
I earned my Ph.D. from the Department of Geography and Planning at the University of Toronto and I have expertise in the following fields:
- Health Promotion and Active Transportation
- Cities, Governance, and Civil Society
- Community Development
I am always looking for new opportunities to collaborate on research projects with other academics, urban planners, or health promoters. So if you got a partnership idea… drop me a line!
In 2018, I received The Green Ribbon Award from the University of Toronto Scarborough in recognition of ‘outstanding achievements in campus sustainability’
