About Me


I have served the territory as a principal, assistant principal, program support teacher & teacher with Yellowknife Catholic Schools from Pre-school to High School, with student populations ranging 120-650.

I have also served as the Territorial Inclusive Schooling Coordinator with the Department of Education for the Government of the Northwest Territories, working with the educational regions across the north in inclusion and on a number of territorial initiatives. 

I have a passion for learning that has led to me to many educational pursuits including my Bachelor of Fine Arts, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Education, and a Masters of Education in Educational Leadership & Administration (with a focus in Aboriginal education).  In addition I am a Go To Mental Health trainer and have a keen interest in student and staff wellness. I enjoy many artistic pursuits and I am a Level 3 certified WSET educator, currently studying Level 4.

Please do not hesitate to contact me as family involvement is critical to our students' success!
