I began tutoring math an science in high school in Sidney, volunteering as a peer tutor by 1988. I achieved a BSc, Biology, from UVIC in 1994. I am also a dancer and artisan (pine basketry). I've been tutoring kids on Salt Spring island since 2010. I love this island, and have childhood memories of camping and visiting friends. I'm working towards my dream to live on Salt Spring Island full time one day. I've dedicated time and energy volunteering at the SPCA dog daycare, Saturday market. I'll continue building connections and helping others. I am already part of the fabric of the community.
