Magic Moment: The latest milestone in my life has been the birth of my daughter Mira, 8 weeks ago. Becoming a mom has changed my life in ways that I never even imagined. However, I know that I want to return to work full time. As a mother I have had to learn patience and be able to create calm in stressful situations that I believe will translate well to my career.

Key Influence: Danny Klempfner – Do something that you love and if you are not happy it is up to you to create the path to change.

Next Big Challenge As An Industry: As an industry, a challenge that is relevant to me is the promotion of deserving woman to senior positions. In order to achieve this it is extremely important to highlight women in the industry and their successors, provide mentors to women at all stages of their career and women in senior positions taking initiative to help the next generation advance their careers

Secret Talent: I love to sail.

On Championing Others… I am constantly meeting with women who are eager to enter the real estate industry to answer their questions and share my career experiences with them. I am on the mentorship committee for Toronto CREW.

One word that captures you: Motivated
