I was lucky enough to part of the staff at Ecole McTavish when it first opened up in 2011. McTavish has been, without question, one of the best schools I’ve had the privilege to be part of, and I am thrilled to be back and working with everyone here.
I studied English and Music at Queen’s University and I later went back and completed a certificate in Creative Writing along with a Mental Health and Addictions program. For the most part, being in the education field for all this time has helped me appreciate the extraordinary resilience exhibited by students during a time in their lives when they’re growing up and learning how to navigate tough decisions.
Outside of school, I play a variety of sports, from badminton to softball to the occasional volleyball. I read and write a lot, and one of my favourite things about Fort McMurray that has changed since I left has been the emergence of coffee shops in and around the city. I also sing and dance, though not very well, and I have a love-hate relationship with the Toronto Blue Jays.
