Communications Strategy & Content Writing

Interests & Causes

Having attended a constructivist school in my childhood and adolescence — aka “that hippie school without homework!”, according to mom — I was surrounded by people who cared deeply about the planet. I grew up in close contact with nature and involved in conversations about what was going on in the world and how to make it better. This influenced my personality and the choices I made, like becoming a communications professional to help others tell stories, be heard, and change the status quo.

In addition to my upbringing, after the birth of my oldest son in 2018, I became increasingly worried about the grim political scenario and environmental news. I feared for my children’s future and realized that I needed to do more to protect nature, fight the climate emergency, and create a fairer and more equitable society – so I decided to become more active and refocus my career.

I firmly believe that we have power as citizens, voters and consumers, and that we can change things for the better if we make conscious choices and act together. I’m doing this by volunteering my time, skills and expertise, working on meaningful communication and education initiatives and being an active citizen and consumer.

Causes That Speak to My Heart

  • Environmental education
  • Nature conservation & climate change prevention
  • Indigenous reconciliation 
  • Waste reduction & sustainability
  • Social entrepreneurship
  • Permaculture & regenerative agriculture
  • Food security
  • Mental health and suicide prevention

It seems like every parent on LinkedIn is sharing life lessons their enlightened children are teaching them, so I decided this was a good time to share what my offspring have taught me so far.
