Throughout my life I have always enjoyed playing and working with children. Over the years I have babysat, coached and taught children of all ages. I love seeing their joy and smiling faces when they have accomplished or discovered something new.
I have worked as an Educational Assistant for over 19 years at the Vermilion Elementary School and have worked in grades K to 6. Each and every day it is amazing to see how the children flourish and grow in their education. I Feel privileged to work with the VES staff to create a safe and welcoming environment for children to learn.
I grew up on Pender Island British Columbia with 5 sisters and one brother. When we were in high school we had to take a water taxi to school. I have been married for over 34 years to my husband Duncan and we have lived 30 of those years in Vermilion. We have three children and two grandchildren. In my spare time I like to ski, hike, bike, kayak,garden and do pottery, but most of all I enjoy spending time with my family.
