Named to Avenue Magazine’s Top 40 Under 40

I am incredibly honoured to be included in Avenue Edmonton Magazine’s Top 40 Under 40 for 2012! This past Thursday, they hosted an event at MKT on Whyte Avenue to launch the issue. Standing in line waiting for my name to be called, I got chatting with the women on either side of me alphabetically. I was blown away: here I was, making small talk with a highly successful cancer research fundraiser and a neuro-surgeon. The rest of the “Class of 2012” includes community organizers, artists, chefs, entrepreneurs (including one of my good friends, Dana DiTomaso), and academics.

What a thrill! And what pressure to continue earning my right to be counted among them…

 

Here’s the link to a quick video they did of the event. And the picture was taken by amazing Edmonton-based photographer Aaron Pedersen.
