While on my way to becoming an accountant, I became involved in an extra-curricular program working with students with special needs. Those kids changed my life and I changed my program. While in university, exploring how computers can be used to help students soar, I became hooked. With Learnstyle, I am able to live my passion for learning, working with my teams, our students and their teachers to help them find their own successes through their own use of technology.
My hero is my dad. He overcame many difficult challenges in his life and always taught us to look for the good all around us.
Sushi! I love sushi and sashimi, especially when it includes flowers carved from vegetables from the sushi chef at our favourite restaurant!
I love the Harry Potter movies and can binge them, much to my family’s “again?” comments, the Marvel movies are high on my list and I never miss a new release but a fav movie that I love to watch is “About a Boy”.
My Happy Place
My happy place is with my family. My boys are my inspiration and the reason I love being a mom. (My son took over the selfie I was trying to take)
I was very involved in Track and Field when I was young. 100 metres and 200 metres were my specialty. I completed till I was in Grade 13. This sport gave me a good sense of discipline as you had to work hard if you wanted to be competitive and stay at the top of the field.
I have been struggling to take a good selfie. Here’s one of me and part of my dog’s head.
Here’s a view from the top of the escarpment along the Bruce Trail.
More about me.
My favourite pastime is hiking. With my dog by my side, we hike the various trails that are close to where I live. I love my hikes through the forest – it is beautiful and peaceful at all times of the year. The Bruce Trail, along the Niagara escarpment, is a favourite with the hills and ravines that provide for a great workout!
