How/Why I Become a Teacher?

I have turned every job into some form of teaching. I enjoy working with people and seeing them excel at their goals.

  • Bachelor of Science, Computational Mathematics
  • Master of Education, specializing in online and distance education

Awards & Recognition

I belong to the Certified Horsemanship Association, which is an association of approximately 4,000 horseback riding instructors. In 2014, I received the CHA Volunteer of the Year Award for assisting CHA with a e-learning strategic plan and contributing to their new Instructor Manual.

My Relevant Experience in the Field

I worked as a Systems Analyst and Technical Training Specialist for 15 years. I have owned my own business(s) and worked in both the public sector and the private sector. Currently I work at The Township of Gillies as a Municipal Treasurer, and my husband and I operate a horse boarding facility.
