My favourite pastime is reading and I can often be found with my nose in a book. I have been a writer at heart from the very beginning, writing children’s books for younger grades in elementary school. I have recently authored a memoir, “Letters to My Hypothetical Children”, contributed to a #1 internationally bestselling book, “Silent Grief, Healing, & Hope”, and authored numerous articles for TWINS Magazine, New Dreamhomes Magazine, and Life in Multiples.
I have a passion for education and lifelong learning, devoting my career to publishing educational resources, developing curriculum, and teaching at the post-secondary level. I have been teaching since 2017 and have taught courses such as Introductory Communications, Professional Writing, College English, and Conspiracy Theories (Critical Thinking), at Fleming College, George Brown College, and Humber College. I have 15 years’ experience in post-secondary education in a variety of teaching, editorial, sales, marketing, project management, acquisitions, and new program development positions, providing a unique, holistic perspective. Companies I have worked with include: American Technical Publishers, McGraw-Hill Education, NELSON Education, and Harlequin Enterprises.
I am recognized as digitally-savvy and forward-thinking, and have been invited regularly to pilot and launch new technology, as well as provide training and documentation cross-functionally. I drive change for innovation and efficiency. I am a collaborative and diplomatic leader and team member and I thrive on a challenge.
In my spare time, I volunteer for causes related to children’s and women’s rights and I donate blood on a regular basis. When not reading, writing, or teaching, I am a mom to twin girls. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, participating in any activity outside, and catching up on sleep whenever possible. I love coffee, Harry Potter, and puppy snuggles.
