About Me

I am the EA for Josh Brown's Grade8/9 K&E classroom, and also assist in Gym and CALM class, and in the kitchen. I also work with the Elders from the Native Friendship Center to coordinate monthly talking circles availible to youth from any background.

I completed my Social Work Diploma program with RDC in 2011, and am currently taking online courses in my free time towards my Bachelor of Social Work. I have current certificates in various courses such as PACE, ASIST, Abuse Prevention and Aboriginal Awareness. I also work part time in group homes within Red Deer.

This will be my fifth year with Red Deer Public, six if you include my practicum year of social work that I was with the school as well. Together with my continuing work in various group homes and my time at the school I have had a lot of experience with high school aged youth. 

I like cats, live music, hiking and adventures!

I am always around if students need anyone to talk to or simply help with their school work. :)
