I have worked in community and social services for over 23 years, specializing in mental health education since 2010. In addition to designing and facilitating workshops, I have served as a panelist and presenter at conferences, delivered keynote speeches on mental health, and provided consultation support to community mental health initiatives.
Before becoming an independent mental health educator in 2018, I produced and delivered curricula, trainings and resources for the Canadian Mental Health Association (Ottawa and Toronto branches) and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH).
I have lived and worked in Ireland, Honduras and Brazil. I have a Master's degree in Social Work and a BA in English. My first book, a collection of short stories called The Colours of Birds, was published by Tightrope Books in 2018.
