I was born and raised in Provost. I received my Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Alberta and returned to Provost to teach. I taught Kindergarten for 13 years, Grade 1 for a year, Grade 2 for 3 years, and Grade 3 for 4 years, but not in that order. I have been married for 24 years and have 2 children. My husband, Jim, works in the oil patch. My son, Ben, is 21 years old and is apprenticing to be an electrician. My youngest child, Finn, is 18. My hobbies are reading and card making.
