I have been fortunate to spend the entirety of my career to date contributing to nonprofit organizations as both an employee and a volunteer. I am currently Program Director at LEAF - Lake Erie Arboretum at Frontier Park. I have previously served as a Board of Directors member at Mentoring Artists for Women's Art (MAWA), the Vancouver Island School of Art, and the Erie Branch of the American Association of University Women; as Vice President of the Board of Directors at Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre; and as Museum Manager & Program Director at the Museum of Health Care. I have exhibited my art in solo and group shows in Pennsylvania, British Columbia, Manitoba, and Ontario. Born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honors) from the University of Manitoba.
