After graduating from the University of Alberta in 2007 , I was fortunate enough to receive an offer to teach grade one at Westlock Elementary School for the remainder of the school year. Since then, I have taught one year of grade two, eight years of grade three, and am currently entering my second year as a grade six teacher! I am a truly lucky person to have a job that I love, to be able to work with such an incredibly talented staff, and to interact with not only the children, but the adults from our community.

I grew up on an acreage near Morinville and then lived in St. Albert for a brief period of time until I made the move out to Westlock to begin my new career!   In the summer of 2012 I was presented with an opportunity that I couldn't refuse, to raise my daughter in the house I grew up in!  I purchased my parents acreage off of them, and that is where I plan to settle my roots with my beautiful daughter Ayla.  I love staying active and I participate in many physical activities outside of the school such as competing in the local triathlon or heading to the mountains for a weekend of hiking or biking.  I also make time for one of my passions in life, running!  Every summer you'll often find me all over our beautiful province running in races ranging from 5km to 125km!   Aside from my classroom duties I coach soccer, volleyball, and the Running Room Games running team for both Westlock Elementary, and RF Staples.  Let's have another great year, and Go Foxes Go!!!
