Speaker Bio:

Speaks:

English

Speaking Topics:

Navy, Canadian Armed Forces, Remembrance, Women in the Military, Women in the Navy, Careers.

My family always bestowed a sense of duty on me as a child. When I was a teen, I decided I wanted to join the military and take up 'the torch' that my Grandfather (a veteran of the Second World War) passed down to me.

After graduating high school I decided I wanted to be an Officer in the Canadian Armed Forces, (the caveat being that you need a university degree), so I dropped out of community college, went to night school to boost my GPA and worked an office job for a year to save for school.

In 2017, I applied to and was accepted at the University of Toronto for an Honours Bachelor of Arts specializing in Political Science and the Canadian Armed Forces as an Intelligence Officer out of HMCS YORK in Toronto.

In 2019 I switched military occupations, took an educational hiatus, moved across the country and began my one year of training to become a Naval Warfare Officer.

Topics I enjoy discussing: the Naval Reserves, Remembrance, Women in the Military, the Canadian Armed Forces, leadership, education, and personal/professional development.

The Memory Project includes a community of over 1,500 veterans and Canadian Forces members who are committed to sharing their stories of service.
