Why Equitas? I’m proud to serve on the board of Equitas. I’m a stakeholder engagement and public policy specialist with 20 years of experience building and implementing effective and influential strategies for clients across corporate, not-for-profit and public service sectors. At the heart of my success and where I can support Equitas, is with my ability to build trust and understanding between companies, government, organizations, and stakeholders. I have successfully guided clients to important wins across a variety of sectors including transportation and infrastructure, natural resources, innovation and technology, education and training, climate change and international markets. Throughout my career I have been responsible for building strong and effective relationships with diverse stakeholder groups and Indigenous communities – focusing on bridging priorities from the bottom up and top down to form clear and measurable deliverables.
