I’ve been lucky to have time to pursue the things I love. I’m a playwright, director, actor, singer, reader, teacher, principal, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, and poet. I am a member of the Playwrights Guild of Canada. I am a proud citizen of the Métis Nation of Ontario.
In June 2019 I was appointed Cobourg’s 4th Poet Laureate.
For more than twenty years, I’ve worked as an educator in Ontario in both Elementary and Secondary schools.
Creativity-in-community is important to me. Here are some of the local groups I’m connected to: Northumberland Players, Safe Harbour and SONG, Spirit of the Hills Arts Association, and Cobourg Poetry Workshop. For many years I was also a member of the Writer’s Community of Durham Region.
