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.
