In 2010 I started BCFamily.ca as a venue for dialogue about family-focussed news, information and opportunities in the Lower Mainland and British Columbia. My professional background includes experience teaching in Montessori and international schools in Canada and Japan; research/training regarding the Reggio Emilia programme, ECE issues and choice in public education in British Columbia; and experience working in an administrative position at Simon Fraser University. I completed my education and training at Queen’s University, Kingston (BA Hons.), Montessori Training Centre of BC (AMI Dipl., Primary Years ) and the University of British Columbia (M.Ed.). After living, working and studying in North America, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, South East and East Asia, and spending time in the Caribbean, I now call the lower Mainland home along with my husband and two young children. I have been writing and publishing online content since 2004.
