Currently, she serves on the Board of Directors of Power Productions, a St. John’s-based theatre company with a mandate of establishing diversity and accessibility in the performing arts. She and her Guide Dog, Cheryl, live in St. John’s, where they work together to hack the complex and challenging urban environment in thier beloved home city.
