Born into a family of avid readers, teachers, musicians, artists, and storytellers in mid-sixties Toronto, my love of the arts – and, by extension, “creativity” – came naturally, and I always wrote and performed anything I could from elementary school right through university.
Over the years, I built up a rather varied multi-disciplinary arts background … with experience in writing, visual art (drawing, painting, and collage), music (singing, musical theatre, violin), and theatre (as an actress).
I majored in Drama at the University of Toronto, and subsequently earned degrees in English and Education. Not surprisingly, I worked as a professional actress before becoming a teacher (at one of Canada’s premier private schools).
And Teaching has been my profession ever since – for more than two decades now, in fact!
Some of my most profound and beautiful moments therefore have involved helping others build confidence and tap into their own genius – to set goals, and develop not only their dreams but the skills and belief to achieve them.
I’m also a life-long learner, and an insatiable student!
I’ve been studying personal development for more than two decades … having trained with some of the best in the field like Mary Morrissey, Bob Proctor, Peggy McColl, and Derrick Sweet.
