I have had the opportunity to spend most of my adult life as a coach and a teacher. For 15 years I was involved in high school administration, 7 years as a vice-principal (Sept 97 – June 2004) and 8 years (Sept 2004 – June 2012) as principal. In of the fall of 2012 I moved to a position of district principal in the Grande Prairie Public school district working out of central office. In the spring of 2013, I accepted a position as Assistant Superintendent of the Westwind School Division in Southwest Alberta. I will be retiring from Westwind in the summer of 2018 and will be taking up a new position as the Executive Director of the Southern Alberta Professional Development Consortium.
I completed a Doctorate of Education in July of 2017 focusing on leadership and leadership development.
