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 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 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 also occasionally teach at the University of Toronto Scarborough in the Department of Human Geography, and 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’
