Key Roles


I have the pleasure of being the new principal for École Olds Elementary School! I have been in Chinook's Edge School division for almost 20 years - as an educational assistant and then teacher at Midway School east of Carstairs, a curriculum & instruction coordinator in our division office, a K to 12 vice principal at Bowden Grandview School, and now principal of ÉOES. I have taught many courses and classes from K to 12 and enjoy the challenges and successes of each grade level. I have a passion for teaching and life long learning and believe that the love of both starts early. I am excited and honoured to work with such a dedicated staff of professionals, with students who want to learn and with a parent and larger community focused on supporting everyone in their success. 

I completed high school in Olds and have never ventured too far from this wonderful town. I am thrilled to be teaching in this community and look forward to reconnecting with people and meeting new faces. I have a young son who is the focus of any 'non-school' time as we travel between hockey, baseball, golf, swimming or the new found guitar. We are always happily busy! 

I look forward to a great year of learning and fun!
