I am a preschool teacher for the South Country Preschool, what I like most about my job is getting to watch the children develop in their social learning; seeing their friendships form, watching and listening as their play evolves, and being amazed by their imaginations. When I’m not at the preschool you will find me at the Western Financial Insurance office, but for fun I like to ride horses with my daughters and work in my garden.

I love my job! Spending time with the kids and watching their imagines at work, teaching them, as well as learning from them is so rewarding. In my time away from work I enjoy as much family time as I can as well as golfing and gardening.
