I am a nature-loving doctoral student at the University of Toronto (OISE) pursing my PhD in Curriculum Studies and Teacher Development. Having worked with diverse students ranging from toddlers to the post-graduate level, I’m passionate about getting people of all ages out and about exploring their local neighbourhood. In my work with OISE’s Environmental and Sustainability Education Initiative, I have been able to promote just that, through organizing workshops and conferences dedicated to getting students outdoors more often. My graduate work examines the relationships between environmental and sustainability education and Indigenous place-based education. My goal is to implement meaningful pedagogical approaches to teaching about the environment in accessible and relevant ways.
I received my Master of Teaching and my Honours Bachelor of Science in Psychology both from U of T, so it’s only natural I have come to call this sprawling campus home. I love animals, books, travelling, yoga and going on hiking adventures with my dog.
