My Story

My Personal Side

  • I love the colour pink, heels and anything girly.
  • I also love being a tomboy and doing anything outdoors. One of my favourite tasks is the haul for firewood and the work that goes into getting it all stacked in place.
  • I love helping my uncles in Muskoka with their maple syrup in the spring. I love tromping through the snow, the smell of the sap and the sweetness that blows in the the air when the wind wafts over the fire.
  • I love Haggen daz ice cream and eat it as often as I can.
  • I love roadtrips and exploring new places.... especially in late summer and fall.
  • I love winter vacations... and especially the Turks and Caicos. Endless beaches and beautiful sunrises.
  • I am in love with my best friend and partner of five years.
  • I am blessed to be mom to two wonderful children and their spouses.
  • I burst with pride over my beautiful grandson who is almost a year old. He makes my heart sing with joy. I spend as much time as I can with him and always feel more alive and energized after a visit.
    My dog is like my baby and brings me so much pleasure and many hours of entertainment racing through the forest together.
  • I really believe in the power of love and try to live my life by looking through the lens of forgiveness and awareness. I practice random acts of kindness.... and strive to be the best and see the best in others.
  • I believe in marriage and good old fashioned values that include, respect, hard work, honesty and commitment.

My Professional Side

  • My favourite word is Kaizen ... which means "continuous improvement". I have spent the last 30 years of my life teaching, coaching, mentoring, and leading projects focused on early education, health and well-being.
