I was born and raised in Lunenburg Nova Scotia where I attended the Lunenburg Academy and even had my fair share of rides on the Bluenose II. I graduated in 1997 from Park View Education Centre, a school I attended in Bridgewater to take advantage of the school's advanced level courses. With my mother's roots being Moncton and her mother's roots being Albert County I decided one day that Mount Allison University was the ideal location to gain an undergraduate degree. My highest marks in high school were in the languages, humanities, and physical education areas so when choosing a degree path I chose sciences simply because I wanted them to be stronger.
In 2002 I graduated from Mount Allison with science degrees in Biochemistry and Physics completely reaching the goal I had set for myself. During my time in Sackville I found my love for the city of Moncton strengthening including places like nearby Parlee Beach and Albert County. I chose to attend the Atlantic Baptist University to gain my Education degree for the simple fact it was in Moncton. I took an internship roll at Moncton High School and then landed firmly in Albert County at Caledonia Regional School in 2005. I live in Riverview New Brunswick which is a great middle ground for both Relaxation (Parlee Beach) and work. I found the girl of my dreams in nearby Sussex and together we added the most wonderful ball of energy in the form of our son William.
in 2007 I added to my education by gaining the highest level of certification for teachers in New Brunswick by getting a degree in Education Technology from Cape Breton University. This degree would prove to be a priceless addition over the course of my early career. I currently am in my 10th year of teaching and find myself becoming more and more involved in acquiring technology for our technology department, helping to lead the district and province into increased education technology use and creating engaging and newsworthy projects for my students to work on. With several successful contest wins, technology grant submissions and provincial leadership roles I earned a promotion to Department Head (S.P.R.) of Numeracy, Science and Technology and with that role the highest possible salary in New Brunswick for an educator. The students still run to my classes after 10 years which makes time feel like it is truly flying by. So far teaching has been very fun and has allowed me to explore personal interests, continue my education, cherish valuable family time, and get to know hundreds of young talented people who will lead this province in the right direction.
