Over the last 15 years, I have dedicated my career to the non-profit sector, primarily in management and fund development. My fundraising expertise spans diverse sectors such as education, health, housing, immigration, youth, and other priority populations. Driven by my passion for social impact, I pursued an MBA focusing on social enterprise. I was convinced businesses can effectively create change and work with priority populations while remaining self-sustaining.
During my MBA, I established Business Path, a consultancy empowering small and medium-sized entrepreneurs to develop successful business plans and obtain grants. My work at Business Path has helped numerous entrepreneurs across various industries secure business loans and IRAP grants.
In March 2021, I took on the role of Director of Business Development & Partnerships at Technology Helps, a full-time contract position in Calgary.

I have a strong background in business strategy, marketing, pricing strategy, community connections, and business development. My experience spans supply chain management, project management, business planning, and proficiency in Microsoft PowerPoint, Word, and customer service. With a passion for building community and trust, I successfully created multiple strategic partnerships and drove sales.
