HI! So I am the oldest, therefore the most ‘life experienced’ member of the Eye Health Centre team. I am usually referred to as a ‘jack of all trades’ as I come from a very diverse background; having been a teacher, a Dietary Food Supervisor as well as a Personal Fitness Trainer - but regardless of the occupation my passion is teaching and leading people to be the best that they can be! In my current position I work as a Vision Therapist, helping our patients realize their potential within the realm of visual processing. It is a very rewarding field and I am always thrilled to see my patients graduate and conclude their journey with us.
When I am not at work I spend my time pursuing one of my other passions, which include running, baking, reading or spending time with my grandchildren!

Q & A
Q. What’s your favorite way to spend a weekend?
A. An early Saturday morning run, followed by a BIG breakfast. Housework and laundry completed by late afternoon and then an ice cold beer as I settle back to enjoy hours of great music on CKUA, then enjoying a relaxed dinner. Sunday is always my rest day – mostly spent on the couch with a good book, a big cup of coffee and if I’m lucky some sunshine streaming through the windows. Dinner is usually spent with my daughter’s family – can’t get enough of my gorgeous grandchildren!
Q. Would you say you’re more of an extrovert or an introvert?
A. Without a word of doubt, an extrovert! I love to be around people, to connect and get to know them at whatever level deemed appropriate… just so you know my kids say I am one of ‘those’ people; before you know it you will have my family history and I will have yours!
Q. For what in your life do you feel most grateful?
A. Definitely family… I have a wonderful husband who is my closest friend, and a daughter and son who are still my favourite people to spend time with! Holidays will always find the four of us together – listening to music, sharing good food, reading books or playing games, and just being happy to be together!
