Key Roles

This is my fourth year at OKCS in the role of FSW worker. I live with my husband and two children in Carstairs. We attend Home Church in Olds. We love our small town! Both my kids attend elementary school at OKCS. My husband and I are from this area although we spent the first ten years of our marriage in Calgary pursuing education and beginning our careers. I attended Rocky Mountain College in Calgary and later Gonzaga University where I obtained a MA in Counselling. It is great to be back in small town Alberta. 

I absolutely love building relationships with the students and listening as they share their hearts. I truly believe that strong and healthy relationships are the key to our kids' wellbeing. Parents - you are your child's greatest resource! You are doing really hard and important work everyday building into your children's lives. 

The Family School Wellness (FSW) program exists to support students and their families socially and emotionally in order to help children be successful at school.

If you are interested in accessing Family School Wellness or wish to learn more about the program, feel free to send me an email or contact me at the school. I am here most Tuesdays and Thursdays.
