I have lived in Toronto, Canada all my life. I have two younger sisters – one lives in British Columbia (western Canada) and the other one lives in Toronto. My mother has been in Heaven for fourteen years, but my father is still alive and lives in Toronto as well. Most of my professional career has been spent in the not-for-profit sector with large charities, but I also have accounting and finance experience in industry, public accounting and a small private accounting practice. I am currently in transition and seeking a new career opportunity. Although I would prefer a permanent full-time role, I am also available for casual, contract or part-time opportunities.

In my spare time, I enjoy attending baseball games with my father and even worked part-time for the Toronto Blue Jays during their 2016 winning season. I am a member of the Canadian Association of Women Executives and Entrepreneurs (CAWEE), the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) and Financial Executives International (FEI). Networking at various events, attending live theatre and spending time with friends and family are also enjoyable pastimes.
