100 Mile House, BC

idp@ccscl.ca

I’ve lived in 100 Mile House with my family for the past 20 years, having grown up in Vancouver, studied in Montreal, and worked in Toronto. My husband and I have 3 daughters, now 14, 17, and 21. I was a La Leche League leader for 12 years and find the field and practice of supporting infant development fascinating. As a sole charge consultant, I really appreciate the connections to other consultants around the province through involvement with the association.

I have lived in Powell River for almost 30 years after growing up in New Zealand. Working in the ECE field for over 25 years, I began in private daycare and also worked in a young parents program. I have been in Infant Development and Supported Child Development with inclusion PR for the last 6 years. I am a single Mom to an 8 year old daughter and enjoy the outdoors, including camping, hiking and biking. I love being connected to other professionals and feel we can all support and learn from each other.

Prince George, BC

I have worked as a consultant as part of a self-directed team in the Infant Development Program in Prince George since August 2002. In the spring of 2011 I was hired as the Regional Advisor for IDP for the North region, and combine these two roles. Since I first started with IDP I have had some involvement in our professional association in some capacity – as a regional rep, secretary, and membership co-coordinator. In my personal life I like to walk, read, hike and practice yoga.I recently became a certified yoga teacher and teach yoga in both my own home studio and in a community studio some evenings and weekends. I am a parent of 3 grown children, mother-in-law (or ‘mother in-common-law’, as the case may be) to their three partners. I also have 2 wonderful grandchildren that I love spending time with whenever we can get together.
