Writing & Creative Marketing & Business Administration Assistant
Lisa grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia, and later moved to Mississauga to pursue her Honours Bachelor of Science in Psychology at the University of Toronto. Lisa is passionate about social psychology, especially understanding how to build meaningful human relationships and interactions. After graduation, she became more interested in how social psychology principles apply to human resources and marketing in the business and non-profit sectors.
Lisa's compassion and kindness have often motivated her to get involved with organizations and programs that help vulnerable groups. She has worked with the Bloor Street United Church Refugee Outreach Program since September 2019, where she learned a lot about connecting with and meeting the needs of individuals from different backgrounds. Organizing the weekly meal prep, setting up study areas, and chatting with attendees at the Saturday English Conversation Group highlighted to Lisa how even small acts and programs can mean a lot to individuals who are struggling to adjust to a new environment or overcome educational barriers. She continues to pursue community engagement while working as the Creative Marketing and Business Administration Assistant at PFAU: Academic Writing Experts, where she develops engaging marketing materials, outreach initiatives, regular social media posts, and even helps to host a Podcast for students.
To unwind, Lisa enjoys exploring the diverse city of Toronto on foot or sitting under a tree reading a poem. She loves theatre, poetry, art, creative writing, and other forms of artistic expression. She believes that abstract expressions can help bridge the gap in communication between diverse perspectives.
