I first started volunteering with the ALS Society of BC in 2015, wanting to give back while searching for my own path after graduating with my Bachelor’s degree. The ALS Society of BC gave me my start to my communications career, granting me an opportunity to help coordinate a Walk to End ALS and honouring me with a Leader of Tomorrow award. Today, I’m with the corporate communications team at FortisBC, one of BC’s largest energy solutions providers. My work involves acting as a corporate spokesperson on daily issues and helping educate British Columbians on FortisBC’s efforts to advance a lower carbon future in the province.

I’ve worked with provincial-scale organizations in the private, public and non-profit sectors. From salmon farming to emergency communications to energy, I’ve immersed myself in high-profile organizations that deal with complex issues British Columbians care deeply about.

I am thrilled to rejoin the ALS Society of BC as a member of the Board. I look forward to helping advance the vision and mission of the Society, give back to those who gave me a chance, support those who need it and surely learn a lot along the way.

There is no known cause or cure for ALS, yet. But it is because of the time, efforts, commitment and dedication of every member of the Society that there is hope. I’m grateful to be a part of this journey
