About Me

I am a McMan Success Coach and I run the MyPlace Project here at CHHS.
What can I say? I LOVE MY JOB!

MyPlace is a mental health capacity building project which focuses on promotion, prevention, and early intervention of mental wellness. I work with ALL grade 7/8 students whether it is in their classroom, at lunchtime, or during after school activities. MyPlace also hosts a family night once a month for any family interested in getting together for some food and fun! And, all of our activities are of no cost to the students thanks to the funding we receive.

I grew up on a farm south of Medicine Hat and graduated from Eagle Butte High School. I attended MHC and earned a diploma in CYCC (child and youth care counseling). Fun Fact: I am also a Journeyman Hairstylist!

When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and running dog agility with my beautiful springer spaniels.
