I am originally from Australia and have had the good
fortune to visit many countries and experience many
cultures. My empathy, humor, and culturally sensitive
approach provide a warm atmosphere where children,
adolescents, and adults can feel welcome and accepted.
I believe in the importance of strong communities and
currently volunteer within many community based
organisations, such as Woods Homes, Girl Guides of
Canada, and my childrens’ school. I am a proud parent of a child on the autism spectrum and believe that every child
can grow up to lead a happy and productive life given the
right opportunities and support.
