Engagement and Transition



“My approach to work is methodical and I thrive under pressure. I believe in leaving everything better than I found it and enjoy creating and refining systems to streamline processes.”

Passionate about social justice, I chose this field to make a real positive impact on the lives of individuals living with disability.

The best part about working at Enliven Housing is getting to help a wide range of clients and their amazing support teams. There are so many people in this industry who are passionate about making life better for people with disability and it’s really rewarding to be a part of that effort, even in my own small way.

In my role, as Business Development Manager, I love matching applicants with their ideal homes. Witnessing individuals thrive in safe, supportive environments that allow them to focus on their goals and dreams is the ultimate reward that drives me every day.

Career highlight:

Switching from the private development sector to for-purpose work was a big step for me. It enabled me to combine my housing experience with my passion for social justice, fulfilling a lifelong dream.

Outside of work:

You'll find me spending time with my puppy named Bambi, reading, mixing cocktails, and catching up on sleep.

What super-power would you want?

I’d love to be able to talk to animals - I'd do almost anything to have a conversation with my dog and hear her speak back to me.
