Born and raised in the Kootenay area of British Columbia. Graduated University of British Columbia with Bsc- Biochemistry and Bed- middle years. Mother of 4 children, Bryan Jared, Andrew, Katelyn. Taught Jr high and High school in BC and coached basketball and volleyball before moving to Alberta for more of the same. Outside of teaching I enjoy camping with the family, biking, downhill skiing and I am currently a volunteer actress in Keyano Theatre Company performances. Favourite thing about teaching is seeing the joy on a student's face when they have accomplished something they had previously thought was impossible for them to do.
