Kay is a Cohort I Studio Y Fellow. Eclectic, restless and politely persistent, she is a born-and-raised Torontonian who knows it’s not the centre of the universe. For two years, Kay was the Business Lead and co-founder of Crossroads Collective, a web design and development firm. She has professionally blogged about talking to strangers (Hart House), work and vocation (One Alpha Avenue), and access, equity and learning skills (Life @ U of T). She also writes poetry that sometimes gets published.

Having worked for two years as an employment counselor at WoodGreen Community Services, Kay is using her time at Studio Y to hone new approaches to youth unemployment. A graduate of Pearson College, Kay attended on full scholarship as one of 200 students from over 100 countries. She was pleased to join Studio Y on hiatus from her final year in Psychology, Peace and Conflict Studies, and English at Victoria College, University of Toronto.
