I grew up in a Christian home just north of Brantford, and became a follower of Christ at a young age. Enjoying both science and math, I graduated from the University of Ottawa with degrees in biochemistry and chemical engineering. It was there that I met my husband, Colin, a fellow Engineer (yes, we have super fun dinner conversations)!
We settled in Fergus after getting married in 2000, and started attending Lakeside the same year.
We are blessed with a talented teenage son, Sam, and unicorn-loving daughter, Sarah. When not running to dance competitions and hockey games, I am a Professor in the Engineering Department at Conestoga College and self-employed as a Corporate Trainer. My passion is singing and helping people experience God through music. You will often find me on stage at Lakeside Central or with my daughter on the stage in Lakeside Kids.
