2sLGBTQI+ Youth Advocate, Crisis and Trauma Specialist, relationally-focussed + anti-oppressive lens. Cat lover, film enthusiast, foodie at heart.

My favourite thing about working in the Child and Youth Care Sector is engaging with young people in the life spaces that they occupy. I enjoy listening to the stories that they tell, and learning from them. I strongly believe that young people are the key to a more equitable future and it is our duty as mentors to foster agency in young people so they can live to their fullest potential.
