I am a Real Estate Broker from Royal LePage Signature. I have been a real estate agent since 2018. Prior to that, I worked as an assistant to a Toronto Real Estate Broker for 3 years.
I have an Honours BA in Psychology from the University of Ottawa. I always had an interest in helping people, which was my motivation for studying psychology. Upon graduation, I realized that I could apply my degree to many different fields. I ended up working in real estate because I loved the idea of meeting new people, helping people through a stressful time, and building relationships.
I have volunteered with TREBB since I started in the business, serving on the Communications Committee for two years, followed by the Diversity & Inclusion Task-force, and now the Governance Task-force.
I have also dedicated my time to projects with the housing committee at the Black North Initiative. I chose to apply to be on the Board of BRAC because I am passionate about equity, and I have a deep understanding of the nuances of racism in this city.
I grew up in Toronto, and though I have noticed how much progress we have made, there is still a lot to be done. When I entered the real estate industry, I did not see anyone who looked like me in the upper echelons of the industry. Agents who I was told to look up to never looked like me. I was aware that I would be held to a higher standard and have to prove myself.
My goal is to help to create not only a space but also a culture where Black real estate professionals and our clients are treated fairly, and held in the same regard as our Non-Black counterparts. held in the same regard as our non-Black counterparts.
