Mom, Mental Health Advocacy & Women Empowerment
Welcome to my ongoing self-discovery journey.
Making an impact by being the change.
COMPASSIONATE & KIND
I am a Mom in Tech & Entrepreneurship
I aim to be the voice for the voiceless
I openly speak about my experience with anxiety and depression hoping to encourage others to do the same and break the stigma around Mental Health.
Being a community leader I motivate, support and uplift those that struggle with Imposter Syndrome, especially women in technology.
As a lead for the Facebook Developer Circles: Toronto, I started the women in technology initiative for the North America Region.
I'm the founder of MentallyVR a Virtual Reality platform for anonymous psychotherapy sessions.
My goals are:
Create Mental Health awareness & resources

Lissa is one of a kind and passionate entrepreneur. I had the opportunity to learn and co-work alongside Lissa at Parkdale Centre for Innovation at the Women in Leadership program. I also recorded meditations for her venture, MentallyVR. It was a pleasure to work with her. She is a smart, dedicated and positive individual who is always cheering others on to achieve their goals. I’m always in awe of her enthusiasm and drive. She’s accomplishing great things and can't wait to see what incredible success is in her future. Anyone would be fortunate to know and work alongside Lissa.
