What I Do

I work closely with Research, Strategy, Sales & Trading, Technology and Data Science to combine qualitative and quantitative analysis into transformative digital solutions. My focus is on transforming data into rich, meaningful, and relevant insights capable of gaining client engagement.

Proud Moment

Along with my colleagues on the European Inclusion and Diversity Committee, we were able to roll out the Sidekick Initiative and Mentoring Program during the pandemic. It fills me with joy and pride to hear how much it made a positive impact on people's lives. The feedback we received was extremely positive with many saying it was a good anchor during an incredibly uncertain time. Working with a team of people that cared about the chemistry and ongoing relationship between the mentors and mentees for each match was a privilege that really paid off.

Another proud moment was being promoted to Director last year. I work incredibly hard to make every initiative I'm involved in a success and it was really rewarding to have my skillset and dedication to TD Securities recognized.

Advice to My Younger Self
