I grew up in the Maritimes and graduated from Mount Allison University in 2014 with a triple minor in Theatre, Music and French. During my theatre studies, I enjoyed learning and filling roles both onstage as a singer/actor and offstage as a technician, graphic designer and carpenter.
I moved to Montréal in 2014 and completed an ESL teaching certificate (CELTA) that started my journey as a teacher/animator! I started teaching kids in 2015 with Sportball Québec leading their multisport program in daycares and weekend parent and child classes.
I eventually joined the team at Langmobile, where I worked for four years in various teaching and supervisor roles, where I got to lead workshops in daycares and afterschool programs teaching English, Zumba, yoga and music! During this time I also worked for Les Petits Ménestrels teaching music and for 123 Steps Ahead teaching creative movement.
During the early days of the pandemic, with more time on my hands, I started delving back into some artistic passions from my past. I rediscovered my love for databases and coding 🤓 and using modern web languages to create useful and beautiful web apps & websites.
I also continued my DIY passion while in lockdown, building those custom shelves, nooks or desks and lighting our apartment to perfection! All these artistic pastimes do involve a certain use of the body, whether it be carpentry or coding I knew the best help for doing those activities sustainably, would be a resource from my past: The Alexander Technique.
