She has worked in the philanthropic and communications field for a number of non-profit organizations in British Columbia, including Stanley Park Ecology Society and the Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation. She also she spent five years with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds in the UK (Europe’s largest wildlife conservation organization), where she managed the organization’s media and communications program in the West Midlands.
