Even though I did not set out to work in post-secondary education, I found myself at home when I joined Athabasca University in 1996. Through the years I have worked in a variety of departments. I have been an Academic Advisor since 2001.

I am a firm believer in lifelong learning and advanced education. My first credential, a diploma in Early Childhood Development, was awarded in 1991. I continued to upgrade my education; completing a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology in 1997 and a Master of Arts, Integrated Studies in Adult Education in 2012.

When not assisting students at AU with program planning or course selection; or advancing my own education, I spend my free time traveling, arts and crafts, and playing my French horn.

I look forward to assisting you.
