Social Innovation Consultant
Social Innovation Consultant, what does that mean? It means I want to use my skills to bring about change in the world, one step at a time. I help organizations and communities develop sustainable innovative solutions to complex social and economic problems.
Currently I am facilitating a systems change collaboration in London, ON focused on financial empowerment for low-income populations. I also co-manage a micro loan fund for marginalized entrepreneurs.
I am passionate about culture and travel and have worked in both Uganda and Bolivia on start-up projects empowering communities through micro-finance and entrepreneurship.
I constantly seek to challenge myself and grow my capacity for change.
