As the child of a clergyman and social worker, she did not grow up in the business community and was impacted by the inclusiveness within the Edmonton region. Having worked in various sectors, her connection to the business community is grounded in its interconnectivity and the reoccurring conviction of what this region can become by working together. She believes that when we connect with others, purpose-to-purpose, our passions are evoked. and that it is here we construct what might be.
