Learning alongside students and colleagues often makes my “job” feel more like play than work. I am privileged to have spent time learning alongside diverse student groups in international and northern physical and digital classrooms.
I earned my M.A. in English Literature from Dalhousie University in Halifax, NS. I also have a B.A. (hons.) in English Literature from St. Mary's University in Halifax, NS, and a B.Ed. in English and Social Sciences from University of Toronto, ON.
At Yukon University, I teach business and intercultural communication classes, and support faculty as part of the Teaching and Learning Team. Discovering ways to make course work meaningful for all learners/teachers makes me excited to come to work every day.

"Knowledge emerges only through invention and re-invention, through the restless, impatient, continuing, hopeful inquiry human beings pursue in the world, with the world, and with each other.”
