I'm an inquisitive and knowledgeable entrepreneur and philosopher at heart who balances profitability with my passion for doing good. By blending different ideas, I imagine the future then work to make it real. I'm the relaxing sigh from tension, often supporting others in solving their problems.
Active in the community, I sit on the board of the Regina Home Economics for Living Project, volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, and having lost my mom to, and having someone close to me afflicted with cancer, am a regular platelet donor, helping those undergoing chemotherapy to recover. I also provides microloans to people in developing countries through Kiva, and I donate to a number of charities including the Nature Conservancy of Canada, the World Society for the Protection of Animals, and Unicef.
