I have spent the last four years teaching a variety of social work courses at Booth University College. I have completed undergraduate degrees in Theology and Psychology, and went on to complete double Masters degrees from Wilfrid Laurier University in Social Work and Theological Studies.
I worked for several years with children, youth and families in child welfare, school settings, and residential treatment facilities. My work in training youth care workers led me to teaching, and I love the opportunity to interact with students in the classroom. Another highlight to my job is the opportunity to connect with students and arrange placement opportunities that allow students to grow and develop as social workers. I feel privileged to walk with students on their journey to professional practice. My areas of academic interest include exploring the connection between faith and social work, both historically and in the current context.
I am married with two children and attend Home Street Mennonite Church. When not attending guitar lessons or hockey practice, I can be found reading a book for my book club or trying to catch up on my scrapbooks.
