Profile

Personal

I am an Educational Psychologist, also trained as a teacher, offering a range of services to assist organizations and individuals to meet the challenges associated with special educational needs. I assist educational organizations to analyze areas of strengths and needs and to develop creative responses that support both students and teachers. I also provide educational psychology and professional development services to international schools.

I was born and educated in Great Britain and have lived in Canada since 1967. I am the parent of a culturally different child (Inuit/Canadian Eskimo) and have several grandchildren. I travel extensively (I can have my backpack ready in half and hour) and write short stories

In my busy professional life I have been a classroom teacher, a special educator, a university professor and an administrator in a department of education. My full C.V. is on line. I have made Whitehorse, in the Yukon Territory of Canada, my home since 1989 and I undertake projects within Canada and internationally.
