What was one of your favourite work projects?
My own startup PALcares has been hands down my favorite undertaking I’ve made so far.

PALcares serves two primary purposes: Connecting community members to relevant social supports and collecting and mobilizing data in the public and non-profit sectors.

Most of my free time is spent working on PALcares or with my family. I do enjoy the occasional trip to mountains for a hike as well.
