Born and raised in a small town on the shores of Lake Huron, Lena has developed deep passions for the environment and global development. These passions translated to the first two years of her degree, as she began university in Globalization studies: applying a global mindset to social, environmental, and economic sustainability.
Lena further developed these lenses at Ivey to suit a business context. As she pursued the sustainability certificate to complement her HBA degree, she learned about impact assessments, indigenous worldviews, and how to enact sustainable change. Lena’s time at Ivey was also centred around her role as the VP Academic for the HBA Association, a Mentor for the Ivey Consulting Club, a Conference Director for Ivey Women in Management, and as the Valedictorian for the HBA Class of 2021.
Now, as she begins her career in consulting at ZS Associates, she is determined to have an impact on the future of global business by aligning corporate strategies with sustainable practices.
