Elizabeth has recently started the role of Project and Policy Coordinator at the International Federation on Ageing (IFA) in 2024. Elizabeth brings a robust academic background with an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Criminology and Sociology from the University of Western Ontario, and a Master of Arts in Sociology from the University of Toronto. Her academic journey reflects a diverse range of research experiences, including the critical role of community spaces for the 2SLGBTQ+ community, social media’s impact on feminist movements, and urban planning.
Outside of academia, her workplace experiences in community organizations that address the systemic barriers faced by individuals experiencing substance use, a lack of housing, and mental illness, fueled her dedication to shaping socially progressive policies. Her enthusiasm for addressing the challenges faced by ageing populations also aligns with her role at the IFA, where she seeks to contribute to the recognition and success of this demographic. As she continues with the IFA, Elizabeth remains unwavering in her dedication to making a meaningful impact in the field of social policy.
Beyond her professional pursuits, Elizabeth enjoys painting, pottery, cooking, and watching movies, often accompanied by her two dogs!
