I'm very happy to be joining the Elmdale Team! Before becoming a counsellor I was a teacher for many years at Mitchell Elementary. As I grew as a teacher I discovered my passion for the development of each individual child - helping them discover their own unique gifts, strengths and contributions. In February 2014 I graduated with a Masters degree in Education in Counselling Psychology from the University of Manitoba. I am also certified with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. For the last 4 years I worked as the school counsellor at Blumenort School. I am particularly passionate about the early years grades and the personal and social development that takes place at that time of life.
I live in Steinbach with my husband and two kids. In my spare time I like to read, cook, spend time with friends, and walk with our dog, Daisy.
