Biography

I am a Winnipeg-born writer now in Ottawa. I have worked in child protection services, as a Nanny, in day cares and schools. I have also been a Foster Parent and managed the daily operations of a group home. I completed my Early Childhood Education coursework at Algonquin College and my Psychology degree at the University of Manitoba. I went to McMaster University for a degree in Gerontology and then had plans to go into social work. But, life had other plans. I ended up working in the Federal government. During that time I obtained a Human Resources Management Certificate; project management training; language training, etc.

Then in 2015, I had an accident. As part of my recovery, I started writing again...
