What is the best piece of advice you ever received?
I heard this on Oprah’s podcast: “If you concentrate on what you have, you will always end up having more. If you focus on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” Our lives shine a bit brighter when we can be grateful.

What is your personal mantra?
Look for the magic within ordinary.

How have you grown since joining GALE?
I’ve become happier since joining GALE! Work is an integral part of our lives, but it isn’t always the greatest environment for us to grow. GALE has provided the community and resources to not only enhance my career while remaining true to my values but also to cultivate relationships that go beyond the workplace. Connecting with individuals from various domains has allowed me to learn so much, from conflict resolution strategies to the latest UX software. The journey has been incredible so far, and I’m looking forward to what the future holds!

If you had a side hustle what would it be?
Yoga Instructor. Recently, I’ve been going to Misfit, the movement studio on Ossington and it’s allowed me to fall in love with being physically active all over again. No matter what, we should try to remember how wonderful our bodies are.

If you could pick one person living or dead to be your mentor who would it be? Why?
Maya Angelou. She was a powerhouse throughout numerous industries and demonstrated to the world how multi-faceted woman are. Listening to her discuss her views on happiness, womanhood, success and everything else would’ve been life-changing.
