Before I was elected, I worked as a Professional Geoscientist. My graduate (Ph.D. 2006) and postgraduate research was supported by numerous provincial, national and international awards, including the prestigious L’Oréal/United Nations Educational Scientific Organization (UNESCO) Women in Science Fellowship. I managed industrial-academic partnerships and environmental research in the non-profit sector.

I recently served as the first President of the Scarborough Community Renewal Organization (2016-2018), and as President of the Centennial Community & Recreation Association (2015 to 2017). In this capacity, I worked collaboratively with stakeholders and residents to advocate for investment in Scarborough.


I've also served as a member of the UTSC Council (2015-2018), as a citizen member of the Toronto Region Conservation Authority (2015-2018) and as a member of the Scarborough Women of Philanthropy (2015-2018); a council in support of the Scarborough & Rouge Hospital Foundation.

As your City Councillor for Ward 25: Scarborough - Rouge Park since 2018, I will continue working with residents and the greater community to build a better and more livable city.
