Working with young people is something I have always enjoyed, so I trained as a high school teacher. I recognized the importance of building rapport with students to help them better understand their learning styles. We learn together, as each has a role of student and teacher. With LEARNstyle, I am passionate about serving students for whom mainstream education has fallen short.
My hero is one of my previous high school students whom I met when she was only in grade 10. She was quiet yet determined. I supported her through high school as her teacher, through her transition to university as a mentor and now we think of each other as sisters. She overcame migrating to a new country, learning as an ESL student, a challenging childhood and being away from family. She is completing her last weeks as a university Nursing student and applying for full time positions in the city’s hospitals. Her resilience, friendship and optimism will always be qualities I admire.
Helping students become confident leaders who can navigate their worlds to succeed.
This was our first family vehicle we could all fit in, an upgrade from the fold-down seats in the truck. Adventures await!

As a family, we loved travelling and camping together in our various minivans over the years. Living in a remote small town, we learned to appreciate family, nature, adventure and travel.

Writing in Colours
When I’m not using my technology to write, I love writing with fancy coloured pens.
More about me.
I have loved travelling from an early age. While living abroad, I was lucky to have the opportunities to explore the other side of the world. On each adventure I try something creative to learn the culture and find a unique souvenir.
