I am a project manager with over 17 years of experience working in health IT, epidemiology and public health. I have merged my experience in epidemiology with my passion for statistics across my various roles with IT consulting companies and provincial bodies. In addition to my analytics and health management skills, I have significant experience with change management.

In my current role at Avantage I am the Project Manager for the HydraFacial Data Team. I guide this team as we manage the HydraFacial data warehousing and governance, and maintain associated reporting across the various business units. As project manager and team lead, I effectively facilitate an open and supportive environment to enhance team cohesiveness.

Prior to joining the Avantage team, I worked for health systems teams across various government organizations.

When I’m away from the office, you can find me cooking, dog training and spending time outdoors with family and friends.
