Living in Canada I have the experience of a newcomer, a student, an employee, and an entrepreneur and business owner.

I have represented many Canadian companies at leading trade events in North America & Europe to attract new business to Canada.
My last venture was assisting Canadian companies to enter and develop new business in new markets, which lead me to working in the field of immigration and international mobility. I have the team in place and a national network of contacts looking for innovative ways to develop opportunities for immigrants.
