I value ongoing education (formal and self-directed) and spending time in research in order to support my clients and class participants.
A lot of the wisdom and support I offer also comes from the work I’ve done personally to put down deep, strong roots of self-awareness and self-compassion and to show up fully to life, through heartache and challenges.
I’ve shared some of the courses or training I’ve taken:
Bachelor of Education with a major in French Immersion Education: Grande Prairie Regional College, Université Laval – Québec, Faculté St.Jean- Edmonton. 6 years to become bilingual (I had no French training prior to my degree) and complete all requirements of my B.ED. except for final practicum.
