I am a family peer support worker, a workshop presenter, and fascinated by the stories of people's lives. I am trained in theatre, emotion focused family therapy, conflict resolution, mediation, and restorative justice practice. I have lived experience as a caregiver and I believe that parents need more supports to navigate the challenges of child and adolescent mental health in our increasingly complex and stressful world. I am passionate about the stories of our lives: those we tell ourselves, and those we choose to share with others. I've worked professionally in theatre, film, TV, radio, politics, and the non-profit world and continue to look for new opportunities to connect, share and grow.
In the midst of hate, I found within me there was, within me, an invincible love. In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile. In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm. I realized that through it all-- in the midst of winter, there was, within me, an invincible summer. - Albert Camus
