What gets you out of bed each morning? My alarm. I’m not a morning person!

I get super jazzed about meeting, collaborating, and sharing with others. My life is fuelled by meaningful connection.

What’s your favourite book? Rising Strong by Brené Brown… I love how she is all about dropping shame and perfectionism, and showing up with vulnerability and courage. She is so full of gracious grit, I love it.

What 3-5 words best describe you? Resilient, soulful, and sincere. Down-to-earth and excitable with a big, soft heart.

What’s your favourite thing to eat? Where is it from? This is literally the hardest question in the world for me because I love food SO much! I’d have to say my favourite (not everyday) food is wood-fired Neapolitan pizza. There’s a great spot in Tofino called Basic Goodness Pizzeria overlooking the water which was pretty memorable. I also adore roasted veggies of all kinds and am currently obsessed with fennel.

What’s something that people don’t really know about you? I am a pile of mush over puppies. I’ve never had a dog, but would love a red retriever some day! Also, I used to sing in a vocal jazz ensemble!
