Hello from Courtenay!

I just starting the program and am very excited, though a  bit nervous to be starting with two electives.

Briefly, I completed my degrees in English and Law at UBC and practiced law for a little while  before happily ending up in adult education. I taught at private colleges for 15 years, spending the last 10 as senior education manager.  I learned a tremendous amount about education–most of it the hard way.  I do feel very lucky to now be able to delve more deeply into so many of the things I had to experience on the fly.

At the moment I largely work supporting my husband’s software development business.  I also just started a part-time job as the librarian for the Courtenay and Campbell River courthouses; it seems like a great job to have when going back to school!

My interest in 522 stems largely from my goal to develop educational software/applications in partnership with my husband.  I am sure that there is a lot to learn before “venturing out” of my comfort zone.


Otherwise, I live on a small acreage with the aforementioned husband, two horses, and a wonderful dog.  I enjoy a myriad of outdoor activities, growing stuff, and board games..among others.

I look forward to working with you all.
