Biography

Strategy Analyst, Ontario Ministry of Labour’s Prevention Office, working on the coordination of strategic initiatives and research and analysis projects focused on the implementation of the province’s first integrated occupational health and safety strategy.

Recognizing that the knowledge economy favours highly skilled professionals with technical expertise in a specialized field, I decided to marry my degrees and focus on labour policy.

By learning the employment trends of different sectors I was able to identify areas of growth and skills gaps —including the need for labour policy professionals in government, which resulted in this important and rewarding work.
