Loving animals has been a theme throughout my life. I got a kitten when I was 2 years old, and never looked back. Over the past decade, I have dedicated my life to helping those who have no voice – from volunteering with local animal shelters, to starting a cat rescue organization, and successfully lobbying governments across Ontario to change responsible pet ownership and animal protection laws. I live in a cozy town home with my husband, 3 dogs and 3 cats, and wouldn’t have it any other way. A serial entrepreneur and change maker, its important to me that I make the world a better place for all who live in it. I think the challenges facing our generation are great, but working to address the climate crisis and improve animal welfare gives me Hope.
