Recent Engagements

I have been on the road traveling the country for Comedy, TV, Professional Speaking and Hosting for the past few months. I have been posting photos and updates on my website and I wanted to share with you where I have been in the last couple weeks.  I had the pleasure of visiting North Nova Education Centre and Northumberland Regional High School, speaking to students about Diversity, Inclusion with the world theme of “Born This Way”.  Speaking to High School students is very important to me, definitely one of my high lights each year.  North Nova Education Centre was so welcoming, I have to show you some great pictures we took while visiting.  Much love greeted me as I entered the front doors, and I was well looked after by everyone, Thank you.
