Although I grew up in Ottawa I moved to Boston, Massachusetts after high school to pursue higher education. With in the US, I completed 2 undergraduate degrees and a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and then spent 10 years teaching. I was eventually out of VISA options to live in the US so moved back to Ottawa after 14 years between Boston and Toledo, Ohio.
Once back in Canada, I began working at Filosofi while I was waiting for my teaching certification to be processed. After a few months at Filosofi I began working full time and took over managing the company. I enjoyed my time so much that I opted not to return to teaching. Now, 10 years later, I am still managing Filosofi which includes all of our hiring and staffing, marketing and media and everything else in between.
When I am not here, I spend as much time as I can outside, travel (I have been to 12 countries so far and am longing to add to that sooner than later!) and paint anything and everything.
