Current Projects

I created “The All-Inclusive Guide to Neurodiversity” in response to the underwhelming resources regarding different neurological types.


  • This book hosts a variety of educational topics surrounding the concept of neurodiversity, from learning about terminology to the origin of the Neurodiversity movement. As a person with ADHD and autism, I hope to use my own experiences to help others.

  • Alongside the illustrative graphics, readers of all ages will realize that through embracing our differences, we can all better appreciate ourselves as individuals.


The book is available now on Amazon.

McMaster Children's Hospital

Youth Advisory Council Member (YAC)

The McMaster Children’s Hospital Youth Advisory Council (YAC) is a volunteer committee of youth, aged 12-18 years. The purpose of the council is to bridge the gap between patients and peers instead of providing feedback to help improve the quality of patient satisfaction.

On the YAC, I help improve patient satisfaction within the Hamilton Health Sciences communities. I also work alongside other youth to help plan hospital-wide events.

The BYSC is made up of high school-aged students from Burlington who are looking to learn more about City initiatives, get involved, provide feedback and get engaged.
