About Me


I was raised in Red Deer and went through school attending the French Immersion program here at Mountview, Central and Lindsay Thurber.  I graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Education in 2011.  I completed my Master's Degree in Education with a focus in leadership in 2015.  I have taught grades 3, 4, 4/5 and 5.  I also taught ESL in Chengdu, China. 

Before becoming a teacher, I au-paired in Switzerland for a French speaking family.   I also worked in a group home for adults with disabilities for four years.  I think these experiences helped me to find my passion of teaching.

I love to travel.  I have been to 29 countries so far, but I can't wait to see more of the world.  I met my husband while travelling in Asia.  He is from Ireland; we travel to his home annually to visit our family.  We have been married for nearly eight years.  We have two children Poppy and Albie and a dog named Shadow.

In my spare time, I like to look at and create art.  We have a studio in our home but I do not get to use it as often as I would like.  I also love to read and research on pinterest.
