About Me

Born and raised on a farm near a small Alberta town, I've called Fort McMurray my home since 2002. After obtaining my diploma in Early childhood Development from Grant MacEwan College I moved here to join my husband. During my many, many years with FMPSD, I have held many different EA positions supporting children with various needs. After being a stay at home mom for a few years, I returned to work and jumped into a new exciting challenge of the Library world...and junior high!!  I began this position first as part-time, but then the last 2 years as a full-time Librarian. I am able to incorporate my love of reading (and organizing) to create a comfortable learning environment for students. And I am also always here to assist students and staff with any help/materials they may need to help them be successful. 


Away from work I love spending time with husband, our son and our fur baby.
