In so doing, she facilitates an opening to create spaces where people feel a sense of belonging and connection, where they can learn together, and be all of who they are.
Other identities that she brings to her role as a “can opener” include mother to a 10-year-old daughter, biracial child of immigrants to Canada, queer-identified, nature-lover, a believer in the power of connection and the both/and vs the either or, and a multiple gold medal swimmer.
Annemarie works with diversity broadly and is passionate about healing the racial divide.
