I love riding my bike. It keeps me healthy and helps reduce both my carbon footprint and overall stress levels. Some of my fondest memories are closely tied to my affection of being on two wheels.
Presently, I am a Health Promoter and the Scarborough Cycles Coordinator at Access Alliance, a community health centre with three locations in Toronto. I also teach at the University of Toronto Scarborough in the Department of Human Geography.
My goal is to build resilient and vibrant communities.
I work to increase suburban cycling knowledge by building organizational 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. I have expertise in the following fields:
- Active Transportation
- Cities, Governance, and Civil Society
- Urban Greenspaces
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.”
