I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Human Kinetics and Recreation at Memorial University. Being an academic and teacher is the perfect job for me. I am honoured to teach in areas that interest me and work with students on what interests them.

I have the privilege of speaking with a wide variety of audiences – academic and non-academic, adults and youth – about topics that matter. Health. Wellness. Education. Social Justice. Difference. I speak from my own experience as a past professional athlete and motivational speaker in the areas of health, sport, and education.

I am a mother of two beautiful children, an outdoor enthusiast, a retired-competitive athlete, and a recreational artist. I am extremely fortunate to be where I am in life and to do what I do.
