Her interest in environmental issues was sparked while a student at Trent University and developed as a passion while working at the Royal Ontario Museum.  As the Executive Director of Toronto Botanical Garden, she was able to apply her commitment to the environment while overseeing the creation of sustainable teaching gardens and the first LEED certified building in Ontario’s charitable sector.
