About/Resume

About

Throughout my life I have lived in many different places all over Canada and South America. I have worked in a variety of positions in very different types of jobs- from teaching to administrative assistant. I began my university studies in the Fine Arts area but from my very first environmental studies class I knew that was what I truly wanted to do. I wanted to communicate the importance of environmental issues plaguing our planet.

No matter where we live on this earth, our lifestyles affect our natural environment, one in which we depend on for everything. To simply ignore this fact is not an option. I have pledged my life to learn all I can about  and acquire different communication tools from fine art, to social media, to academic papers; all to remind those around us of the importance of our natural environment.
