WORKBOOK AND RESOURCES
WHO AM I? I love that question because it has been quite an evolution and journey to get to where I am today. I am an international public speaker, teacher, and educational consultant presenting workshops across Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. I have done many keynote sessions across Canada and Australia as well as the Super Conference in Vancouver, The Special Education Conference in Vancouver, the ATA conference in Edmonton as well as many district days and PD Days for specific schools. I am also involved in mentoring first and second year teachers in Northern Alberta for a First Nations Board which I absolutely love.
I graduated from the University of Calgary, Canada with a Bachelor of Education and Bachelor of Physical Education and have completed my Masters of Learning Innovation from Queensland University of Technology. I have worked with youth at risk for over 15 years and have implemented early intervention and adolescent programs to assist students in transitioning into mainstream schooling.
I totally believe educators and caregivers being proactive and positive when working with youth is paramount in creating an atmosphere that encourages engagement and excitement for learning. Examining educator’s and caregivers reactions and ability to handle stressful situations in relation to children with challenging behavior can be powerful in creating a more positive environment.
My “Save Your Sanity” workshops concentrate on presenting those skills and strategies to increase resiliency in youth as well as providing specific strategies for educators and caregivers to decrease their stress levels and reactions to challenging situations. I am committed to providing workshops that are engaging, informative and motivating to all participants.
What else!! I am ALSO a triathlete, nutrition and wellness consultant, fitness guru, Isabody Finalist, and motivational speaker. I absolutely love to help people achieve not only their fitness goals but their transformation goals as well. When I talk about transformation, I want people to understand that transformations include a physical, emotional, social, spiritual and psychological change. It is not just about changing our bodies, it is also about changing our mindset. When we change our mind our bodies will follow. I have been there and know what it takes to succeed when things seem so difficult! What are the keys to making the best life possible? How can we change our mindset to help us reach our potential and desired happiness? Let me show you some key strategies to transform your mindset and transform your life!
