Q & A With our Staff

A little bit more about me


MSc in Clinical Embryology, University of Oxford
BSc in Health Sciences, Simon Fraser University

What led you to counselling?

During my graduate work, I collaborated with fertility counsellors. I greatly enjoyed learning more about the counselling perspective of reproductive health and wanted to grow my knowledge and skills within the field!

What/who inspires you?

My family and friends. I am fortunate to have a life full of people who are always ready to learn, give, and support each other.

Favorite things to do?

In my spare time, I love to make things! I build mechanical keyboards and furniture. I also enjoy gardening and reading.

Favorite book and why?

The Book of Disquiet by Fernando Pessoa. It was the first book I read where not only was the narrator unreliable, but the book was written in unedited fragments. It was my job as the reader to piece together these fragments and come to my own conclusion, which I thought was unique, and is more reflective of what going through life feels like!

What do people say is your biggest strength?

My desire to always practice with compassion and to always put people first, whether it is with my colleagues or in the lives that my work impacts.

Something you’re proud of (challenge you’ve overcome, etc.)?

About a year ago, my fiancée and I adopted our cat, Archie. Having never had pets growing up, adopting Archie was a big step in our lives, and there have been so many wonderful lessons and love along the way!
