About Me   About Me
I currently work as for TakingITGlobal on a part time basis as a consultant, helping with fundraising efforts and providing strategic guidance and advice to the education program team. I joined TIG back in 2008 when I was hired to lead the TakingITGlobal for Educators (TIGed) program and program team - a role now managed by my colleague Kate Gatto.

My desire to pursue a career in the global education field was born when I took my first international studies class at university and wondered why global issues weren't better addressed in primary and secondary education. It seemed to me that the education system did not adequately introduce young Canadians to other people and places, or teach them how to work together to build a better world. I feel very strongly about the need to foster global citizenship and cooperation from an early age. It is an amazing experience to be part of a passionate group of people who are committed to helping young people get informed, inspired and involved in making a better future for all of us.
