During my undergraduate degree in Geography at the University of Victoria, I became passionate about cycling as transportation, urban design, and tactical urbanism. Combining these interests lead me to my current course of study as a Masters student at UBC's School of Community and Regional Planning. Between my graduate and undergraduate degree, I built my event coordination and public speaking skills and took courses in planning outside of the university system. During my time outside of academia, I became a Science World facilitator and performed live shows and planned summer camps. I left that position for the opportunity to work for UBC's Medical School as a Program Assistant supporting the Year 1 students and planning their orientation. I've learned so much at these positions and am excited to bring this to my practice as a planner. In the future, I hope to work for public and private entities to close walking and cycling network gaps and encourage individuals to connect with the wider city.
