I studied Anthropology and Political Science at the University of Calgary. I got a Master’s degree in Labour Studies from McMaster University and another in Anthropology from the University of Toronto.
I worked three jobs while going to school full-time to support my family — at a restaurant in the evenings, at a day care in the mornings, and a convenience store on the weekends. I didn't think I am a superwoman, but being a mother of five beautiful children and married to a very supportive husband, everyone wondered where I get all my energy. One thing I can say, "Your energy goes where your passion flows".
