  About Me
 
I have lived my whole life in Alberta, the first 46 in rural southern Alberta, the past 4 years in Lacombe attending Burman University where I earned a BA in Behavioural Science. My children are all grown and living independently, each having post secondary education. I have a wide variety of interests and hobbies which include sports, horses, outdoor pursuits, running, mechanics, cooking, sewing, art and music. My work experiences include bus driving, personal home care, waitress, seamstress, mechanics and parts, livestock husbandry, and agricultural retail. I have volunteered in several capacities which include music and youth leadership in church, mission trips, and coaching volleyball and baseball teams. I have strong interpersonal and leadership skills that I employ with a high level of patience and gentleness. I strive to do everything to the best of my ability and uphold high standards of quality work.
