I grew up in South Vancouver until I was 10, and that’s when my family moved to Ladner. Since then, I have called Ladner home and really enjoy the small town feel and community it provides. I attended public school locally but went to high school at Fraser Valley Christian. There, I developed many friendships that remain to this day. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family.
I completed my B.A. at Kwantlen and later went on to attend UBC where I graduated with a Masters of Education in Special Education. I have worked with children with autism since 2009 in varying capacities, first as an interventionist and currently as a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst. I’m passionate about creating a space for individuals with varying needs to feel comfortable and supported.
It wasn’t until I attended a Christian high school that I realized how valuable Christian education could be. There was this sense of community I had never experienced before and I was quickly able to build relationships with other students and staff that helped to shape who I am today. I am grateful for the opportunity to work in a God-centred place and to provide the students I come in contact with opportunities to feel a sense of belonging and to receive God’s love, the same way that I did.
