  About Me
I have just repatriated after 21 years overseas, living in Asia and England. I have a honors degree in Nursing from UBC, and am a yoga instructor.
I was a girl scout leader for 8 years; designing and implementing the course to my daughter and her 9 troop mates. I taught preschool for 2 years in Hong Kong, and taught English to young children for many years. ( in Hong Kong and in Seoul)
I am a mother of two, age 14 and 20. I am passionate about working with children and genuinely enjoy their energy. I have an abundance of patience, creativity, and most importantly, knowledge of child development. I have taken countless parenting courses, and have even co- led some on request of the instructors. I am very fit and like to encorporate mindfulness, and simple, fun, yoga moves with children I work with.
I enjoy working with the elderly and volunteer in Oak Bay, walking an elderly lady with reduced mobility
I am separated from my husband. My 14 year old daughter lives with me, and my 20 year old is away at college.
For hobbies I enjoy ; yoga, Pilates, hiking, biking, travelling, gardening, and crafts with my very artistic daughter.
