I have lived in the Durham region all of my life and I'm proud to call Oshawa home. I began my insurance career with The Co-operators in 2019 at the Courtice agency. I obtained my bachelor's degree in Economics from Wilfrid Laurier University in 2012 and am looking forward to working in the financial and insurance industry. I have my OTL and life licence, and my focus is on the Life insurance and Investment side of our business.


In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, as well as participating in sports such as golf, volleyball and baseball.
