About Me

Originally from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, I came to Yellowknife in 1996 and have enjoyed many opportunities while living in the North. I have been working with Yellowknife Catholic Schools for 19 years, the last fourteen of which have been in administration, most recently as Senior Administration in Learning.

I am a strong advocate for inquiry-based learning, instructional technology and building 21st-century learning skills in our students, and I am passionate about student-centered and innovative learning environments. I enjoy working with and supporting teachers through professional development, workshop facilitation and providing exposure and resources for new ideas and design thinking. I look forward to continuing to support the district in its vision of empowering our students to become independent learners and leaders, and to acquire the skills for a successful future.
