About Me

Prior to my current role as a Tier 1 Consultant with SET-BC, I was a secondary school teacher for eleven years with the North Vancouver School District.  I absolutely enjoyed working with students in Grades 8 to 12, primarily teaching Social Studies and English.  I have also taught within the International Baccalaureate Program, specifically the Middle Years Programme, at Carson Graham Secondary.

I have been greatly interested in examining how technology can be meaningfully incorporated into the classroom.  In my teaching career, I have experienced many changes that have occurred within schools around the use of technology as both instructional and learning tools.  For unfamiliar users of technology, implementing technology may seem intimidating and uninviting, especially because technologies are constantly evolving and changing.  I completed my Master of Education in Media and Technology Studies Education from the University of British Columbia to formally examine digital learning and curriculum.  I am excited to collaborate with our partners throughout the province to explore how technology may be used in the classroom to support the diverse needs of our students.

My Interests

I enjoy spending time with my family, especially with my two daughters.  When I am able to get some down time, I like to travel, read, and flex my amateur photography skills.
