I have been an educator for over a decade and have had the honour of working with hundreds of students, parents, and educators. Teaching never feels like work to me!! I believe that I am living my destined profession, whereby I am able to share my gifts to help make a positive difference in the lives of those I work with every day. Following the completion of my Masters degree, I transitioned out of the classroom and became an educational technologies consultant. Working as a technology coach with LEARNstyle, I have been able to touch the lives of hundreds of students from various schools boards by teaching them how to use their technology; technology that helps them to be more successful at school by feeling better about themselves, the work they are completing, and by increasing their self-confidence and self-esteem.
My hero is my Dad. From very young he taught me the importance of doing well at school, being financially self-sufficient, working hard for what you want, and being resilient.
My passion is teaching!! I always feel honoured (and excited) to be able to get to know and work with each student. My hope is to be able to make a difference and have a positive impact on their lives.

My Happy Place
My happy place is being out in nature in warm weather, preferably at the beach (I hate the cold!!)
My favourite book is by Dr. Wayne Dyer
Favourite Subject in School
My favourite subject in school was science.
We lived on a small farm and had many types of animals, usually including 2-3 dogs and cats. I spent many summers enjoying the sun outside and swimming in our pool. I had a part-time job where I worked in the kitchen at a nursing home from the age of 14 until 24.

This is me having fun with the filters on Snapchat!!
This is the first cover story I wrote for a national men’s magazine. To write the story, I was able to have a phone interview with the actor while he was on-set filming a show in Europe. That was pretty cool!!
