(she/her)

I have heard this quote so many times. “If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.”

I honestly never believed in that; I didn’t have that passion people talked about. I worked.  

Then 3 years ago I began my journey working with at-risk youth for SHYFT Youth Services and I believe in the quote now more than ever. I LOVE what I do. I became the Program Coordinator and loved the idea of bringing FUN to the mental health field, so when the Opportunity for Laing House came up there was no way I was not going to let my anxiety hold me back from starting something new.  

I was raised in a French-Acadian family so my French accent never goes un-noticed when meeting new people. Quality time with friends and family is very important to me. I love painting and would never say no to a game of “Settler’s Catan.”
