After following my heart, I attended university to complete a Batchelor of Arts in studio art and psychology. I have always been drawn to the art making process, using my hands, and thinking in creative ways.
Her dad served for 24 years as an infantry soldier and completed 7 tours. At 12 she began volunteering for the Meaford Military Family Resource Centre and opened a drop-in centre for teens. She has since been volunteering and working for Military Family Resource Centres in Meaford, Toronto, London and Halifax.
My commitment and dedication to community engagement is no different from my work with individuals, couples and families engaged in the therapeutic process. As a catalyst for change I believe in meaningful communication, inclusion, diversity, creativity, self expression, and courage.
