I earned a Bachelor of Applied Arts from Ryerson Polytechnical University in Toronto; a Bachelor of Education from the University of Saskatchewan and a Masters in Distance Education from Athabasca University.

I am passionate about the development and implementation of diverse learning methods and critical thinking. I believe each person has an innate ability to create their own future in a conscious and profound way if given the opportunity.

President/CEO Global Infobrokers Inc. 

I am the Founder, President and CEO of Global Infobrokers Inc. and the Praxis School of Entrepreneurship. I hold a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Sociology and a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Saskatchewan where I taught Marketing and Entrepreneurship for several years.

I have been and still am very involved in the business community as a board director or volunteer for several organizations where I have also held executive positions. A past president for the Greater Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce and current co-Chair for the Going Global committee, I currently sit on the Board of the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce and Chair the HR Expert Committee.

I am passionate about youth and ensuring they have a chance to contribute their best to the world. I believe each person has a set of gifts and a purpose in life that needs to be discovered and activated. I do this through the Praxis School of Entrepreneurship and supporting the activities of PII.
