As an artist, I never want to sacrifice the integrity and rigorous research methods that an extended academic life has given me. I am a proud Concordia Alumnus, an avid reader, a talented writer and orator. All of this serves me not only as an actress, a producer, and playwright but also as an assistant to anyone with stories to tell and a link between individuals who can grow and learn from each other. I strive to be a good listener and source of support in any community I am in, since no one needs to be a leader all of the time. I have so much learn, and so much to share to get there.
