I’ve always been drawn to the non-profit sector and felt most comfortable in this space.
I was raised by an empathetic mother and a social-minded father so I like to help, and give back – it’s just part of who I am. Whether it’s dog walking for the Humane Society, supporting the local foodbanks, lending a hand to a neighbour in need, or cleaning up local parks and riverbanks – I’m in!
I’ve previously worked as a graphic designer and spent time in the world of print production and publications. Over the years I’ve come to realize that what I like best about this work are the projects and being part of a dynamic team. Call it synergy, teamwork, or harmony – something special happens when people work together towards common goals. This is what brings out the best in me.
I’m not completely surprised that I’ve found fundraising. The opportunity to work with diverse organizations and help them connect with donors is a wonderful feeling and a growing passion.
At Good Works I’ve found an amazing team, creative projects and a feeling that I’m making a difference.
