M.A., Educational Administration, Michigan State University
B.Ed., Music, Massey University
I believe we are life-long learners, having an amazing ability for growth and change throughout our lives. I chose education because I love seeing those "aha" moments with those I work with (children or adults). I believe everyone needs someone to believe in them and their ability to rise to their potential. Education is one area where we get to do that.
My professional journey has taken many twists and turns, from classroom teacher, mid level administration, music teaching, technology and digital learning, through to my current hat as school counselor. This hat is one I love, as it best enables to cheerlead with our students and staff. To walk beside people and help them live their best lives is a privilege and a joy for me.
For hobbies, I enjoy photography, travel, music, reading, kayaking and anything that involves being in nature! My ultimate bucket list item is a trip to Antarctica!
