—1 Timothy 6:11-12


What is a little known fact about you?


As much as I love math and science, I also enjoy a variety of arts and athletics.  Playing piano, writing and running are some of my favourite things to do.  To unwind, I like watching ridiculously predictable crime shows!


Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader?

I am able to motivate and work cooperatively with others to achieve a common goal.  I enjoy the challenge of identifying a need, determining a solution, and working tirelessly to implement it.  Helping others succeed is what I find most fulfilling, and I am grateful and excited, as a Schulich Leader, to be able to make a difference in my community and country!
