Where did you grow up?
My family was raised in a tiny Acadian fishing village called Petit de Grat, on Isle Madame in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. My mother was a teacher and my father was a lobster fisherman and the ocean was our playground growing up!
Do you have any personal/family traditions that you love to celebrate?
Every Christmas, my children and I fill a shopping cart of everything we would love to eat over the holidays, then we go drop it off at the Food Bank for another family to enjoy! The school where I teach, Ange-Gabriel, is focused on making a difference one action at at time, so we help out with local and global projects that they are often involved in.
What advice would you give to somebody moving to Leeds Grenville from another country?
Embrace the diversity of the flora and fauna of our region by exploring our trails and waterways; shop at our farmer's markets and support our local merchants. Experience the variety of cultural concerts at the Brockville Arts Centre and participate in our Multicultural Festival! Find your place in our spiritual community - we have great energy here! Have fun! Explore our region and your new Country! Share your talents! Welcome HOME!
What do you wish other people knew about you?
I am an energy worker and I truly believe that everyone can heal themselves from the inside out and that the transformation begins with an attitude of gratitude. I truly believe that every single act of kindness is worth posing and that everyone can make a difference in this world!
