I am excited to work alongside and support the amazing people in East-Central Alberta, to help you achieve even greater things in your communities.   I come to this new position with a strong background in community learning program planning and delivery, and an in-depth knowledge of Alberta’s Community Adult Learning Program, with nearly 10 years’ experience with Flagstaff Community Adult Learning. I’m known for my passion for people, great listening skills, enthusiasm and sense of humour. I love seeing people and programs reach their potential and I am excited about the possibilities ahead as we transition to the new CALP Guidelines and the renewed adult learning system. I’d love to hear your questions and ideas and promise that I will do my best to provide the support that you need.
