I was born in a small town in Northern Ontario. Since then I have moved across Canada with my parents and siblings and attended a high school in BC. I have always loved trades and doing something with my hands and was happy to enter a millwright apprenticeship in a mining industry. After finishing the program and receiving a red seal, I have worked until my retirement. I wanted to use my experience to give back to the younger generation of future tradespersons. Now, I am taking PIDP, so I can become an educator, a teacher who will prepare those who desire to work in industry.
