1. What is acceptance for you?
Acceptance, to me, means believing the best in people. Always.
2. What’s your favourite holiday?
My favourite holidays are Christmas and Valentine’s Day! I’m a hopeless romantic, can you tell?
3. Who’s in your village?
I consider everyone I meet to be a part of my village. It doesn’t matter if we’ve been friends for 10 years or if we met in the Starbucks lineup yesterday. You are important to me all the same.
4. Why did you join Autism Edmonton?
I joined Autism Edmonton because I believe so deeply in the mission and vision of the organization. It is so impactful to me to be a part of an organization that values working alongside the autistic community instead of just working for the autism community. I have learned so much from the community since working here about effective allyship and know that, for as long as I am working here, Autism Edmonton will continue to foster and encourage that learning.
5. What is your favourite book, author or movie?
My favourite movie is Maid in Manhattan! Or maybe Monster-in-law! Or actually maybe it’s The Wedding Planner! You know what, let’s just say that I’m a fan of all the J-Lo romantic comedies.
