I am a cis queer settler currently living on Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, Huron-Wendat, and Mississaugas of the New Credit territory.
As a budding academic, my work considers the integration of queer and trans perspectives in teaching French as a second language. My MA thesis was supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council. I supported anti-racist scholarship during my graduate studies, and I hold an Honors BA in French Language and Linguistics.
As a student affairs professional, I have nearly a decade of volunteer, paraprofessional, and professional experience in higher education spanning two large institutions and a variety of functional areas. I have led million-dollar orientation programs, devised and delivered training for hundreds of students and professionals, conducted complex data collection and analysis, advised dozens of student governments and organizations, spearheaded grant-funded video education projects, and developed program- and department-wide curricula. In all of my work, I integrate a firm background in equity, most specifically with queer- and trans-promotional and anti-racist lenses.
In my personal life, I am a violinist and the Vice Chair of the Board of Directors for the Counterpoint Community Orchestra, which rehearses at the 519 in Toronto.
