How I Became An Expert

I have extensive experience advising senior decision-makers, including the Prime Minister and senior business / non-profit sector executives on a range of complex policy issues.

In addition to my role with the Council, I’m an elected school board trustee with the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board.
