A born and raised prairie girl, I transferred to Ivey this fall after being granted a gracious full-ride scholarship for my community and extracurricular involvement in Regina. With a love for travel and a curiosity for culture, I have big dreams to explore the world. I am a social media enthusiast fascinated by instant news, blogs and twitter. I want to utilize my creative ideas to change the way people view business and add a unique value to every project I undertake. I also love potlucks, road trips, live music, or any combination thereof.

Personal Definition of Sustainability
Sustainability to me means any effort towards making the world a better place. To pursue sustainability in business displays a love for humanity and society above individual profit and greed. No matter the discipline, magnitude, or focus, sustainability can be integrated into all aspects of life. Those who believe in sustainability efforts believe in creating a healthy society today for the children of tomorrow.

Sustainability-in-Action
When I was in 11th grade I attended a conference on "Energy in Our Future" that opened my eyes to the unfortunate reality of our environment today but also the sustainability efforts devoted to changing that reality. This experience showed me the difference that our generation can make and the opportunity that exists if you really pursue change.

Since then I have been involved in a number of committees: Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE), University of Regina's Business Student's Society, Five Days for the Homeless, and the Raise a Reader Fundraising Team. Each team contributed to local and national fundraisers through on-campus awareness campaigns. I was also heavily involved in local volunteering efforts as a member of the JDCWest Debate Team, which was able to raise a record-breaking $76,500. My time spent as a member of these teams made me feel like I was making a valuable contribution to my community, a feeling I'd like to revive in the future.

Summer 2012 is up in the air right now as I am unsure where I'll be working/living but I plan to get involved in local initiatives and hope to meet like-minded students in the process.
