About me

 

I am an organised, proactive worker, with excellent problem solving skills in difficult situations. I am a Canadian citizen currently on an Ancestry visa. Although I was born in Canada, my parents are Italian and British. I grew up in Rome, enrolled at an international school, and spent two years completing my IB diploma in Switzerland. I have also lived in Toronto and Los Angeles. My diverse background and extensive travelling has allowed me to understand and relate to a variety of people. This experience has given me the means to communicate on many levels.
