Tell us what you do in one or two sentences: 

I organize a portfolio of accredited conferences and courses for physicians across Canada (and beyond). 

What’s your favourite thing about your work? 

The organized chaos! There are always so many balls in the air – it’s an exciting and rewarding work environment.

Favourite vacation spot?  

My favourite country to visit is Italy. If you want incredible history & art, passionate people, to-die-for food, gorgeous countryside, and midnight espressos in a tucked away plaza, then Italy is for you! The coastal cities are beautiful, but Tuscany is a dream, and at least 4 days in Rome is a requirement!

My favourite city to visit is Istanbul. I’ve been 4 times (can't stop!), as there are endless things to do and explore. And the Turkish people are the friendliest you’ll meet. And the food….droooool.
