I grew up with a love of language and a love of learning. In school, you'd find me in the drama club, the creative writing club, of course, and the library.
I went on to work in special education, as an occupational therapist and consultant.
Since 2013, I have told stories professionally, in schools and daycares, libraries and cafes, churches and museums.
You may have heard me at:
The Toronto Storytelling Festival , The Word on the Street, StoryFusion Cabaret and the Ottawa Storytellers’ “Signature Series”.
I have been interviewed on CBC radio and featured on Regent Park radio.
In 2020, I won the Alice Kane Research Award for my work on the story of Jeannie Gilmour, a Toronto woman who died of a botched abortion in 1875.
