Romy is a born and raised Calgarian with proud roots in Latin America. These days she spends most of her time answering emails by apologizing for the delayed reply, while the rest of her time is divided between Twitter and scrolling through the menu selection on For fun, she likes eating and hiking in the great Rockies—simultaneously, if possible.

While she is lucky to have dabbled in various hobbies and interests growing up, her most notable and formative experiences lie within community activism and student advocacy. She gained valuable knowledge and skills in these areas, but mostly an appreciation for everything she has yet to learn. Currently, she works for the municipal government at the City of Calgary and, like a predictable millennial, has yet to figure out what she wants to do with the rest of her life.
