I joined the Living Sky team in the fall of 2015 as a Learning Consultant, working in the area of language and literacy. I have a Master's degree in Education from the University of Regina and a diverse background as an innovative educator, an entrepreneur and a writer. My work as an educator has taken me across the province, teaching in urban, rural and remote northern settlements. I have also worked on a number of writing projects, managed an agricultural publishing business, and been involved in sport as an avid equestrian, trainer and coach. I have a keen interest in the history of Saskatchewan and my recent book Fiery Joe: The Maverick Who Lit up the West, published by U of R Press, highlights the life and legacy of Joseph Phelps, a colourful Saskatchewan politician and farm leader. I also co-authored On the Side of the People A History of Labour in Saskatchewan, for which we received the 2006 Saskatchewan book award for Scholarly Writing. My work as a literacy consultant brings together my love of reading and writing and my commitment to active, experiential and innovative education.
