I grew up on a small Metis settlement in northern Alberta by the name of Paddle Prairie. I spent the majority of my primary education between Paddle Prairie, Grande Prairie, and Edmonton Catholic School systems. I then attended grades 10-12 at High Level Public School in High Level, Alberta. After graduating with several scholarships for academic achievements I was accepted into the Business Administration program at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT). I spent a few years working in the oil field, sales, agriculture, and for a short while with the municipal government. I then applied to the combined Bachelor of Education and Bachelor of Management degree program at the University of Lethbridge where I completed my education. This will be my second year with the Holy Spirit family. I love music, festivals, travel, and teaching!
