I began my journey into the education world at university, where I received my bachelors degree in Youth and Community Studies. I continued my schooling and obtained my teaching certification. While continuing my studies, I attended a seminar about teaching careers and other careers that link to teaching. I connected with the idea that there are a variety of careers that can be fulfilled when you hold a teaching degree. I always felt that I wanted to work with a unique group of students, rather than the entire classroom. I began developing a passion for working with students that are battling adversity. I felt this was my purpose, so when a job opportunity came along, working with students in the special education program, teaching them how to use assistive technology tools to help them succeed, it seemed like the perfect opportunity for me.
There have been a lot of people in my life that I have looked up to. Whether it was a coach, teacher, family or a friend, there have been a lot of people that have influenced me in positive ways and have inspired me to make good decisions and to be the best person I can be!
Cooking inspires me! I look forward to cooking creative meals throughout the day. I enjoy the challenge of making new recipes that I find online or from family and friends. I especially like to experiment with my BBQ pit smoker in the backyard!
My love for dogs and other animals started here with these two pups!
Where is Your Happy Place?
Blue or Orange (Burnt Orange)
Growing up was filled with a lot of activity. Trips, camping, hanging out with friends and family and a lot of sports. I enjoyed all of the extracurricular activities and adventures.
This picture was both happy and sad. It represents all the good times I had in here and it also signifies the end of an amazing journey! Lucky for me, a new journey was waiting for me back in my home country of Canada!
Ingenuity in Mini Golf
Playing Mini Golf is so much fun! Am I doing this right?
Driving is one of my favourite things to do! Whether it’s a weekend trip to Boston to visit family or a drive up north to enjoy the beauty of cottage country, can’t go wrong with a fun Road Trip!
More about me.
I believe traveling is an exciting way to occupy the weekends. Going to different cities and experiencing the energy and cultures of each city. Going to restaurants and diving into the activities that are happening around us. I try to incorporate my love for hockey in each city that we visit by catching an NHL hockey game. Each city has its own vibrancy and I love to be a part of it all!
