As a kid, what was the first thing you wanted to be when you grew up?

An Olympic Figure Skater. I skated competitively for years and I still coach from time to time. 

Where did you go to school?

I am in my final year of undergrad at Queen’s University with a major in Politics and minor in Gender Studies. When not studying or eating instant noodles, I also work as a research assistant with the Centre for International and Defence Policy. 

What is your favourite food?

Moo Shu pancakes from Mekong on Somerset.

What is your biggest pet peeve?

Chronic interrupters.

On a Saturday evening, what would you most like to do?

You’ll likely find me at trivia night at my favourite bar with my favourite people, or spending the night in, attempting to learn to cook. 

What role do you play in Abacus Data’s the Canadian Millennial research practice?

I provide support to the team at large, and also create new content to share with users.

What do you most like about your job at Abacus Data?

I love getting to work in a young and dynamic workplace, with a team that is knowledgeable and passionate about what they do!

Finally, what is one thing people reading this should know about you?

I absolutely love spicy food. I have a very high tolerance for heat- a plate of wings has yet to beat me!
