Passion, Purpose and Positive Change

Drawing on a unique blend of skills & lived survivor experience, raised in a Montreal-based Jewish family with a history of social entrepreneurship, I come to ALG through a non-linear path and bring a one-of-a-kind perspective. As a “recovering human rights lawyer” I bring together the pragmatic problem solver in me, guiding others to make things better, and the neurodivergent creative facilitator, educator and communicator, with a deep passion for human growth, connection and empowerment. In my free time, you can find me fawning over Maya, the family dog, doing yoga or meditating and on walks, so many walks, in rain, shine or snow.

Most importantly I am called to help humans create safer, more inclusive and caring workplaces, organizations and relations where all women can thrive. This is what lights me up and makes me tick. On International’s Women’s Day 2021 I was honoured to be featured by World Pulse in the article:
Her Story Makes History: 21 Women Leaders to Watch in 2021” and in 2022, to be included on the list of Brainz Magazine’s
7 Female Entrepreneurs and How they are Changing the World, to have received a CREA Global Award 2022, honouring individuals who are paving the way in sustainability and mental health, and receive a Digital Changemaker Award as one of the World Pulse 50 Rising Voices, recognizing 50 leaders who are shaping our future.
