General Information

I joined the Trust in February 2016. I am a qualified teacher and have spent the past 10 years working at Berkley Normal Middle School, where I was a team leader and taught in both a mainstream classroom and an accelerate classroom. I also own a dance school where I teach a range of dance styles to children aged from 3 to adults.

I have 3 children, Tyson, Kobe and Armani. Our precious boy Kobe was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and we have been going to Mckenzie centre since the beginning of 2015. I feel honoured to be a part of the Trust as I have always wanted to give back to them in some way, for all the help and support they have offered myself, and my family, over the course of our time with them. I love their approach to things and enjoy being a part of this amazing team.
