My great passion is being on the forefront of change. In my role as the founder and chief executive at MFMG, I create value by developing products and shopping experiences tailored to multicultural consumers.  Prior to my current role, I drove change in higher education by getting universities across North America to adopt educational technology tools from Top Hat. 

My entrepreneurial drive is fueled by my experience as a first-generation Canadian. Leaving my family and friends at age 17 to pursue a BA in Psychology and International Development Studies (Hons.) at the University of New Brunswick boosted my resiliency and adaptability to change. I credit these two traits as the most important to my success in my sales career and entrepreneurial journey. 

If you could see my Netflix "continue watching tab" you will find shows and documentaries like "Forks over Knives, Hungry for Change, Friends, Dirty Money and Gossip Girl".
