WHO I AM
First and foremost, I am a wife, mom, daughter, sister and friend who loves to trek, bike, garden, play music, read and, of course, play with the greatest dog ever, Axel. Outside my personal activities, I am a psychologist, national speaker, university associate professor, trainer, consultant and a change leader in the public sector. My work is grounded in compassion, integrity and quality. My approach is down-to-earth while meeting the highest standards of care.
Recognized for my expertise, I appeared on CTV Morning live, CTV News at Noon, and CTV News at Five, and also on Radio-Canada’s Les Matins d'ici, Le Téléjournal and Les Malins. Also, I am currently one of Bell Let's Talk national subject matter experts. Furthermore, in 2018, I was humbled to receive the national Award for Distinguished Contributions to Public or Community Service by the Canadian Psychological Association. Prior to this, in 2014, I was appointed by the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care of Ontario, the Honourable Eric Hoskins, as one of the 20 members of the Mental Health and Addictions Leadership Advisory Council.
Although I am very appreciative of these recognitions, my focus remains centred on offering the best possible services to my clients and audiences, and promoting overall wellness in our communities.
