I have been at OC since 2003 and in the role of Associate Dean since 2015.  Prior to moving into the AFP Dean’s Office, I was a faculty member and Chair of the Department of Communications.  I hold an MA in English with a focus on composition and rhetoric from SFU. Like many OC students, I was myself a mature student, beginning my undergraduate studies at 31 years old.  My experiences as such—starting my studies at a college and transferring to a university—make my work here especially meaningful.

After graduating from university, I worked for School District 23 as an Aboriginal Advocate and then started a family. When I am not spending time with my son and husband, I enjoy reading and working around my farm with my animals. I have a lifelong love of learning and am excited to meet the students at OC and help them with their educational goals.

Credentials:
MA - Counselling Psychology (Gonzaga University)
BA – Psychology and Sociology (University of BC - Okanagan)
