Wrote when she was in grade two that she wanted to be "an art teacher". After graduating from high school, she attended the University of Toronto and Sheridan College for a degree and diploma in Fine Art and Art History. This was followed by acceptance into the specialized Artist in Community Bachelor of Education program at Queens University, for a select number of artists, musicians, and actors. Deciding to branch off into another area, she continued on to the Critical Disabilities graduate program at York University. She has worked on projects with the Dolores Olmedo Museum, and the Frida Kahlo Museum in Mexico City. This was followed by teaching history for two years at a preparatory high school in Mexico. For the past seven years, she has taught at Sacred Heart High School in Walkerton, Ontario. She has also participated in many fine art exhibitions throughout Ontario. She lives with her husband, adorable chocolate labrador and wonderful baby boy. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, learning new languages, taking photos, and swimming.
