About Me

I use they/them and she/her pronouns.

I have over 5 years of experience in the social work field, working primarily around intimate partner violence, trauma, and self-esteem. Social justice is an important part of my practice and I try to incorporate anti-racist, anti-colonial, anti-oppressive values into my work. 

I identify as a feminist and I try to take an intersectional approach. I try to be an ally to marginalized communities I am not a member of, but I recognize that allyship is a process and not an identity and I welcome any feedback or critique.

I have lived experience of trauma and mental health struggles. I am a neurodivergent, non-binary queer human who is raising two queer kids with several other co-parents in downtown Hamilton. In my spare time, I enjoy being a huge nerd about pop culture, crafting things for the people I love, and listening to science and true crime podcasts. I also like to hang out with my dogs, Macaroni and Andromeda, or my 2 house bunnies, Penny and Leo.
