As a systems change consultant at Reos Partners, I combine design thinking, entrepreneurship, and change management to help diverse stakeholders collaborate on solutions to deep-rooted social challenges. My team is currently running the Emergency Aid Lab - helping colleges across the US design programs to keep their most at-risk students in school.
Previously, I was a founding partner of Journey CX - a consultancy helping organizations foster innovation culture from within. I’ve had the pleasure of working with clients including RBC, CIBC, and Telus. I am also the co-founder of Penyo Pal and SnapLingo - award-winning education technology companies serving over 1 million users worldwide. I began my journey designing digital and service experiences at Google, Adaptive Path, and Vision Critical.
As a global nomad, I have built teams in Beijing, San Francisco, and Toronto, leading projects in industries ranging from finance, consumer technology, international development, to sustainable agriculture.
I am an active speaker, educator, and graphic recorder. I’m honoured that my work and ideas have been featured by Forbes, National Post, Techvibes, and Betakit.
