What is at the heart of your business?
Supporting people during their entire career journey.

Why did you join a women’s coworking and wellness community?

I had looked into many coworking spaces as an alternative to my office – somewhere to gain focus and inspiration – but none stood out like Shecosystem! The space and Emily Rose just spoke to my soul.

 

What do you wish to give and/or receive from this community?


I hope that I can be someone that holds space for other members – a shoulder to lean on or an ear to listen. I would also be very happy to provide advice or feedback on anything marketing or recruitment related. And for me, it’s about surrounding myself with inspiring women that push me to be my best self.

What does thriving Look like for you?

I hope that I can be someone that holds space for other members – a shoulder to lean on or an ear to listen. I would also be very happy to provide advice or feedback on anything marketing or recruitment related. And for me, it’s about surrounding myself with inspiring women that push me to be my best self.

Shecosystem’s core values are: openness, community, collaboration, accessibility, sustainability, feminism, and wellness. Which of these resonates most with you and why?

Feminism. Because I believe the other core values are a result of truly embracing feminism.

Tell us one way you integrate self-care into your working life:

If I’m being honest, I don’t do a good job of this. I try to take walks, but it’s usually just to grab a coffee so that I can work more. This is definitely an area I would like to improve and feel that working at Shecosystem will help me do just that.

What’s your top piece of advice for other entrepreneurs?

“Nevertheless, she persisted.” — There will always be barriers, but if we help elevate each other, we all win.

Anything else we should know about you?

I am a co-director and mentor for the Parkdale Mentorship Program (PMP), I LOVE hip hop and I’m only discovering the greatness of Harry Potter now.
