Abilities Centre’s mission of “Reimagining accessibility and redefining the way Canadians live, work & play” is one that really resonates with me. I admire their dedication to helping the local community and their ambitious aspirations for a national and global impact. The organization isn’t afraid to tackle big issues head-on and lead systemic change. With my background as a management consultant that focuses on growth, I saw an opportunity to leverage my unique skills to meaningfully contribute to support the Abilities Centre on this journey.
Being part of Abilities Centre means a lot to me, especially when I’ve been so fortunate in my personal journey. Inclusivity and accessibility are vital for us to continue to grow as a society. Raising two young kids has caused me to think a lot about the future and the world I want to leave behind for the next generation. I think it’s important to pitch in where I can in supporting Ability Centre’s vision where they strive to build “a better, barrier-free life for all Canadians.”
Serving on the Board allows me to apply the skills and capabilities I have developed to make a positive impact on my community and help fellow Canadians, while at the same time learning how to apply these important principles in my own firm from experts who champion them.
