Before becoming an entrepreneur and CEO, I had been a teacher for fifteen years. I loved it. I have taught at every grade level from Kindergarten to Grade 12. I initially graduated as a Visual Art Teacher; however, I found my niche in early grades education (K-1) where I have spent the greatest part of my career. Young children both fascinate and inspire me. I find it very rewarding to witnessing children’s love of learning develop before my eyes, day after day. Every year, I saw the same dynamic develop in my classroom and it went like this: the more interested in learning my students were, the more motivated I was to research and create inspiring and creative learning activities, to which my students responded with even more enthusiasm... It was a very positive cycle.

Throughout my entire career, I felt lucky that every student to ever be assigned to me happened to be motivated and willing to give me the best of themselves. It took me a long time to understand that the passion I was showing them played a role in how much they were willing and comfortable to push themselves beyond their own believed potential.

Being originally from Quebec, French is my first language. I have acquired English upon arriving in the West in 2000. Since then, language acquisition, bilingualism, multiculturalism, and the relations the latter have on the brain development has fascinated me.

Over the past few years, I have decided to combine all of those areas of interest into the pursuit of a Master Degree in Education with a focus on 21st Century Learning in the French Immersion Classroom, which I have completed in December 2015 at the University of Alberta.

This is when V.I.K. Academy was born. I wanted to create an Educational Centre for Preschoolers (JK & K) that would allow me to offer my passion for education at a larger scale, yet small enough to remain personalized. V.I.K. Academy is the achievement of my career in education. Just when I though things could not get any better, I was lucky enough to have a group of parents assiting me in creating a N.P.O that would allow us to take the quality of our service to the next level. Since Summer 2018, V.I.K. Academy Early Educational Centres are operating under the authority of V.I.K. Society of Alberta. I hope your child will join me and become one of my Very Important Kids.
