My education has always been something I’ve enjoyed investing in. I am passionate about learning and I believe when one dedicates themselves, it helps to create an individual pathway to success. For me, my dedication and passion for education along with having an excellent support system have allowed me to be successful and continue to grow and share my love of learning.
I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Saint Mary’s University with a double major in Criminology and Sociology and a minor in Modern Languages (Spanish). I have recently completed an Honors Graduate Diploma in Autism and Behavioural Science from Algonquin College. I plan to continue my education in the field of Behavioural Analysis with a focus on autism spectrum disorder.
After graduating from SMU, I moved abroad to teach in the Dominican Republic. During my time abroad, I was lucky to have the opportunity to teach at various levels, including elementary and high school. This experience allowed me to see that my love of education did not only apply to myself but also to educate others. Teaching abroad not only showed me the fundamentals of being an educator but it exemplified that all students learn at their own pace and in their own way; it taught me how to differentiate instructional methods.
Foundations For Learning allows me to do what I love while allowing me to use my experiences and background knowledge to help my students along their journey. It is an amazing experience seeing each student travel along their individual path of success. Watching them improve not only their educational skills, but their self-confidence is one of the most rewarding parts of being a clinician at Foundations for Learning.
When I am not working or studying, I enjoy reading leisurely, writing and learning new languages. I also love spending quality time with my family. We like to go on bike rides, hikes and road trips to explore the beauty of Nova Scotia, and also enjoy relaxing with a good movie night.
