I was born and raised in Saskatoon, Sk where I completed my Child and Youth Care diploma. After moving to Winnipeg I worked for an organization with many staff who were deaf or hard of hearing and I was given the opportunity to take and complete all levels of American Sign Language. Having a husband in the Air Force has allowed me to experience living all over Canada and in the USA. Our transient lifestyle and love for new adventures lets us travel and experience new cultures and traditions. I have been in Yellowknife for two and a half years and this will be my 3rd year at KDS. I feel so incredibly lucky to be a part of this team and could not imagine being anywhere else. What I am learning from the students and staff will stay with me forever.
