What I Do

I enable the business to identify and manage technology risks aligned with the Bank's strategy and risk appetite. This includes maintaining an effective technology controls environment and navigating governance, legal and regulatory requirements.

Proud Moment

I joined TD Securities in September 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic when most of our colleagues were working from home. Balancing a prolonged remote working environment has been difficult for the team against a backdrop of increasing cybersecurity and technology risks and a shifting regulatory landscape. Despite the challenges of working remotely, I was able to get up to speed and perform my role effectively.

I manage a dynamic team of specialists with varying levels of experience to deliver our mandate of keeping the Bank safe and secure. I am proud to lead a team with an inclusive mindset that embraces thought leadership and diversity and operates with a deep mutual respect.

Advice To My Younger Self

Keep it up! Feed your curiosity and be persistent. Try as many different things as you can without fear of failure. Learn from the journey. Remember to give yourself a pat on the back and well-deserved rest for your hard work.
