I graduated from the Animal Biology program at the University of Guelph and realized that I wanted to travel and continue my education. I accomplished this by completing my teacher training in New Zealand. This led me to more traveling before I landed in Whistler where I taught all levels of math in the high school system. It was there that I fell in love with a Kootenay boy and after taking a year to drive down to South America it was time to move to Nelson and raise a family.
I feel extremely fortunate to have started working in the ABE program at Selkirk College, first as a relief instructor and now in the summer program. ABE is a unique learning environment that incorporates everything that I love about teaching and learning. I look forward to working with current and future students to reach their “aha” moments.
