About Me

In 1995 I earned my Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Alberta, in the fall I began my teaching career teaching Science courses in the Self-Directed Learning program at HJ Cody School in Sylvan Lake Alberta.  The following year I moved to WM E Hay High School in Stettler, Alberta where I taught General Sciences and Biology courses. In 2000, I took a position in the Science Department at Lindsay Thurber, teaching General Science and Chemistry courses. In 2001, I completed a Master of Education degree in Administration from the University of Lethbridge. I was appointed as the curriculum leader for the Science Department in the 2002 school year.  In 2003, I was appointed vice principal at Lindsay Thurber and stayed in that position until June 2012.  I began the 2012 school year as vice principal at Hunting Hills High School, but was seconded as District Administrator in October to support the District`s Admin Growth Project.  I was appointed Principal of Lindsay Thurber in June 2013.

In my tenure, as vice principal at LTCHS, I was fortunate enough to be involved in the modernization of our building including the design of our Science Park. I have been involved in the creation and evolution of the Thurber Learning Centre as well as consulting in the development of Thurber’s Gr. 9 transition program called Raider Camp.  I am a passionate supporter of all extra curricular activities.  During my time at Lindsay Thurber,  I have coached junior and senior volleyball teams  as well as planned and chaperoned several international and national trips for Thurber students.
