I am honoured and grateful to live and work in Robinson-Superior Treaty territory on the traditional territory of the Anishnaabeg and Métis. I live in community with the majestic Gichigami (Lake Superior) and her northshore life, moods, and dynamic inspirations.
I humbly embrace the intelligence of all life forms and seek their guidance.
I strive to provide learning opportunities that encourage a passion for life-long learning. I believe that educators have the responsibility to prepare students with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills necessary to meet the challenge of developing just and sustainable living practices. I also believe that the most effective and rewarding learning environment is one that is challenging, participatory, experiential, and open to diverse viewpoints. Where appropriate, courses are designed to provide opportunities for students to make connections and contributions to the local region and beyond through service learning initiatives.
Some of my passions include healing with plants, land relations, private land stewardship, and of course my family and friends. I love learning and sharing with others. Life is a WILD ride--yippee!!
