About Me

I recently retired from the Nova Scotia Teachers Union as Executive Staff Officer of Professional Development. I have been in education for 31 years as a teacher, principal, coordinator and adjunct professor. For the past ten years, I supported the professional development of NSTU members. Now, I consult with schools, regions and provide yoga/mindfulness programs within my community. Please click on my website to see my qualifications and experience as an educator, facilitator and consultant.

About My Service

I will be offering beginner sessions and intermediate sessions in mindfulness and yoga. The style of yoga I will be using predominantly in my sessions will be vinyasa.

Recently, I became a cancer survivor journeying 8 months to wellness. I will be volunteering to support cancer patients and their families with mindfulness and yoga. This will cover patients within the Western Health Region of Nova Scotia.
