Professional Background

For the past 15 years, I’ve dedicated myself to the field of education, a passion that has been with me since I was a young student. The classroom has always felt like a second home, especially when delving into the fascinating world of biological sciences. I began working in Teaching Centres in post-secondary institutes ten years ago, where my enthusiasm for assisting others in their teaching development took root. Witnessing individuals embrace innovative teaching approaches and supporting them in overcoming the challenges they faced as educators has been incredibly fulfilling.

Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of contributing to the educational landscape at institutions like the University of Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier, and, currently, Conestoga College. In various roles such as Instructional Designer, Educational Developer, and Manager of Instructional Design, I’ve cultivated a deep appreciation for flexible learning spaces, diverse delivery methods, equity in the classroom, and dismantling barriers to education. Now, as a Teaching and Learning Consultant with Teaching & Learning, I eagerly anticipate exploring novel approaches to support teaching and learning at Conestoga College while fostering a sense of community around learning.


In addition to my professional journey, I am blessed to be part of a family of four (or five, if you include our beloved dog, Wally, who I frequently do). My family comprises my husband, Matt, and our two children, Malachy and Audrey. We relish spending quality time outdoors, whether it’s discovering a new trail, relaxing on a beach, or exploring a provincial park. A typical day often finds me strolling with our dog along the Nith River near our Plattsville home. As a sports enthusiast and active individual, I recently embraced a new challenge by taking up hockey this year!
