“I am passionate about making connections with people and getting to know their interests and aspirations, whether this be with my clients, family or friends. I have also volunteered with Camp Quality since University days, and their motto “laughter is the best medicine” is something I carry into my professional and personal life! Other things about me include my love for travelling, the beach or a good movie.”
