I am passionate about

Actions

I consider myself quite sensitive to the needs of others; I want everyone to feel included, valued and listened to. Above all, I believe everyone deserves to be treated with respect. At work, I set up a choir as well with the aim to bring colleagues together to learn new skills, help with stress and enjoy themselves in a recreational way. I also worked closely with my husband (who I am so fortunate to work with!) to produce a short film promoting Diversity and Inclusion in the company I work for. As part of my involvement with Diversity and Inclusion, I am part of a global working group for Millennials and Beyond (CLIMB), which aims to open dialogue and understanding between different generations and cultures within the workplace. I help to organise on-site events and am the communications lead for our 'Chapter'. In my home town i'm a volunteer for Chester Women's Aid, and am often asked to sing at small charity events for our local Neurotherapy Center. I'm also the assistant musical director for a large women’s community choir which meets on a weekly basis. Since Ottawa I've been part of a OYW Working Group to raise awareness about domestic abuse. Together we created a business case to present to employers encouraging them to have a domestic abuse policy in place, which was presented at the European Caucus in London in November 2017. I'm currently embarking on my biggest challenge yet: to create a small documentary about Domestic Abuse.
