Location: Athabasca, AB

A successful business owner who collaborates with large industrial companies throughout Western Canada, Federal and Provincial Government divisions and thousands of individuals to develop their education and training credentials.  I thrive when building teams and coordinating various projects and am looking forward to the possibility of applying these skills to promote all endeavours of the Athabasca University Student’s Union.  Accessibility to all is incredibly important to me.

After spending more than a decade, raising my 4 children and working full-time as a solopreneur, I know the value of an individual’s accessibility to higher education.  Distance learning has enabled me to pursue my career goals while supporting a growing family and I am dedicated to increasing access for potential and returning students to existing grant and funding systems.

I hold a National Construction Safety Officer designation from the Alberta Construction Safety Association, a Certificate in Occupational Health & Safety from the University of New Brunswick and am working towards my BA Psychology Major from the Athabasca University.
