About me...

I am the full-time support staff person who manages the day-to-day operations of the Faculty of Education's Computer Labs. My office is located at the back of the Main Lab (Room 328A). I am available to lend a hand when students need it, an ear when they want someone to listen, or a shoulder to cry on when they think they won’t make it through.

I am a strong believer of life-long learning having earned most of my education later in life. I returned to school after working at Safeway for 19 years and graduated in 2003 from the St. Boniface Arts & Technology Centre (since renamed the Louis Riel School Division Arts & Technology Centre) with a Certificate in Office Technology and as a Microsoft Office Specialist. At my graduation ceremony, I was awarded the Governor General's Medal for Academic Excellence and I received the Louis Riel School Division Legacy Scholarship.

During my final months at the Arts & Technology Centre, I competed in the 6th Annual Skills Manitoba Provincial competition and earned a gold medal in the IT Software Applications category. I then competed as part of Team Manitoba in the 9th Annual Skills Canada National competition held in Kitchener, ON and earned a bronze medal. This was the first national medal win for Manitoba competitors in the IT Software Applications category.

In 2001, I completed a Certificate in Web Design from the University of Winnipeg Continuing Education Division.

I am also a computer instructor for the Louis Riel School Division Continuing Education Department. I teach a variety of Computer Education for 55 Plus courses.
