About Me

I am an Accountant turned Tech Recruiter, which a sprinkle of the travel bug on the side.

I have a bachelors in Accounting and Finance and have worked at Deloitte in their audit practice nearly two years, where I worked with clients in Real Estate, Mining, and Finance. After discovering my love for recruitment at Deloitte, I transitioned into a Recruitment role with one of the fastest growing start-ups in Toronto. I now live and breathe technology every day.

I'm also an avid solo traveller, having been to 12+ countries on my own. I love capturing my adventures through stories.

Let me know if I can help you tell your story!
