I grew up on a small family farm just outside Minitonas, Manitoba. It was there that I learned the values of honesty, integrity and hard work. I have taught in a variety of schools in Alberta, Nunavut and across Manitoba. In Winnipeg I met my husband, Shawn and we moved to Minitonas in 2003 to raise our daughter Danica. I moved on from my teaching career in 2005 to work for government. In 2016, I was elected as the MGEU 3rd Vice-President and re-elected in 2018.
