The Ivey courtyard is my favourite. The light and fresh air really gets the creative juices flowing.

What is your “dream” career?
I would like to work for a global company where I can continue traveling and learning about the world. Working in a role that allows me to become involved with corporate social responsibility activities, and helping the business world become more sustainable, would be a dream come true.
