I earned a certificate in Child and Youth Work and started my career in Toronto, in child and adolescent mental health in 2004. I worked in various settings, providing support to children with mild to intense emotional and behavioural needs. Later I complete a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Ottawa, with a focus in English and Geography.
In 2011, I travelled to Taiwan, where I worked for 3 years as a kindergarten teacher in an international school. After completing CELTA certification in 2014 and I moved to Saudi Arabia for just over two years where I taught both 2nd and 3rd grade. This past summer I complete a degree in English as a Second Language from The College of New Jersey, and I will return next summer to complete a Masters in Education.
