I am so excited to be a part of the Movin’ Mountains team! I am a daughter, partner, Auntie, outdoor enthusiast, crafter, and speech-language pathologist. 

I am originally from Red Deer, Alberta and for the last 3 years, I have been working for an Edmonton area school district, assessing, treating, and consulting for pre-k and kindergarten aged children with a wide variety of needs. I take a family-centered, collaborative approach to therapy where we work as a team and achieve our goals together.

My partner and I have decided to move to the Kootenays to be closer to family and take advantage of the amazing lifestyle opportunities in this area. I’m looking forward to hiking, mountain biking, swimming and no longer having to endure -45 degree celsius winters!!

My quote, “Begin anywhere” by American composer John Cage is very meaningful to me. It is a reminder that there is often no “perfect” place to begin sometimes difficult journeys, such as a therapy process. However, it is important to get started, wherever we are at that moment, and be deliberate about where we are going. Sometimes we can be hesitant to take action in life because we feel like there might be a perfect time or place waiting for us, but there is no time like the present! So let’s begin!
