I am here to help people achieve their goals and to maintain a quality and fulfilling life. I like to listen, help and support people in their decisions. I like to motivate people towards achieving the things they are looking for and be a positive role model.

I have worked in economic support and have experience in long-term care programs and working with people who are older adults and individuals with disabilities. I have worked in a crisis center providing support to individuals experiencing mental health and AODA crisis. I have volunteered a lot of time in the community and school. I have organized events and experiences for children and families that may not have otherwise been possible, and that is important to me.

In my free time I like to spend time with family, attend my daughter’s sporting events and work on different types of crafts.
