Learning alongside students and colleagues often makes my job feel more like play than work. I am privileged to have spent over 20 years learning alongside diverse student groups in international and northern physical and digital classrooms.

I hold an M.A. in English Literature from Dalhousie University in Halifax, NS; a B.A. (hons.) in English Literature from St. Mary’s University in Halifax, NS; and a B.Ed. in English Literature and Social Sciences from the University of Toronto, ON.

At Yukon University, I currently teach intercultural communication and outdoor, experiential leadership classes, while also supporting faculty as part of the Teaching and Learning Team.

If you are interested in connecting to talk about inclusive communication, experiential learning, student engagement, critical pedagogy, plain language writing, humanizing online learning, or open pedagogy, please reach out.
