  About Me
I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Alberta University of Arts, formally known as Alberta College of Art and Design. Currently, I am coming into my sixth year of working as a self employed in-home Childcare Provider. Prior to, I have had abundant opportunities of working with children and youth in various learning environments.
While living in Nelson, a colleague and I developed an Arts based learning program for children from the ages of three to eighteen. I completed my certification for Early Childhood Education Assistant which was applied between the years of 2012 to 2018.

Through experiences with various ages, group sizes, environments, learning systems, and my personal education, I have acquired vast amounts of patience, compassion, and willingness to continuously learn and evolve alongside children. I believe in safe, structured, and creative environments for children. Literacy and art are key components in my philosophy of Childcare, and I integrate these skills into our everyday activities. Building self confidence and allowing for autonomy through learning and connection, sets every child up to thrive as lifelong learners.

You will find I have strong interpersonal skills, which allow me to build lasting rapport with children. Trust, transparency, and compassion, allow for solid consistent relationships that are fundamental to a child's healthy development. I am a diligent problem solver, and recognise the importance of support and communication when collaborating with parents for the care of their children.
Though my First Aid has expired, I will be renewing that certification in October.
