    With Mavericks and with working with education systems, I got addicted to making the world a better place.

Mavericks for Social Change
Because of meeting lovely Jamie Arron, I got involved with Mavericks for Social Change. In addition to running and creating the Coop Connections program for High Schools, I also helped run PeaceJam in junior Highs, SchoolArts in elementary schools in Halifax, ran events and workshops with Centre for Entrepreneurship Education and Development, Dalhouise's Launch Point & Brains for Change, Mount Saint Vincent University's Peace Conference and helped run Halifax City Hall events. In many ways, this is where my passion for helping people became the addiction of a pragmatic optimist.
