An outgoing, bilingual, hard-working, and enthusiastic leader. Competitive athlete and entrepreneur, passionate about educating the next generation of athletes through the business, and life experiences of guests from The Athletes Podcast.

Growing up in White Rock, British Columbia and moving to St Catharines, Ontario in 2015 to attend Brock University where I graduated with Honours from Brock University's Sport Management program. In April of 2016 I took an internship with the Corvallis Knights, a baseball team in the WCL playing out of Oregon State University. In the final two years of my Undergraduate degree, I worked within Brock University Students' Union, Brock University Athletics, and lead a team as an intern at the Buffalo Canoe Club.

After graduation, staying in Niagara I started my professional career at the Buffalo Canoe Club, a Not-for-profit known for creating world-class sailors. I managed a staff of 18 while maintaining a profitable and growing Junior Activities Department and was promoted for my leadership, decision-making skills, and ability to foster strong relationships.

With a passion for entrepreneurship since I purchased my first lawnmower at the age of 12 (after signing a revenue-share agreement to pay back my father). To now working with Clearco (formally Clearbanc), where my alignment with their unwavering core mission to help founders win, is exactly why I decided to join the company in 2021.
