I am an uninvited white settler who lives and works in both Syilx and Secwepemc traditional, never-ceded territories. This is a realization that is still dawning on me. I'm grateful to have been able to live much of my life in these valleys and for opportunities to learn more about the cultures of the First Peoples to live here. I have worked as a teacher in Botswana and in Japan, and has spent time in Germany, the Philippines, and India. I've had the privilege of teaching and learning from immigrants to Canada from many places on this globe.

I joined Okanagan College at the Salmon Arm campus in 2013. I teach upgrading math and science courses to prepare students for further study. I have international teaching experience; two years in Japan and one year in England. I am also currently a trustee for School District No. 83. When not teaching, I can be found gardening, walking my dog, or traveling.
