I received my MA in Theology (Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy) and my Master of Divinity degree from Waterloo Lutheran Seminary at Wilfrid Laurier University in 2016. I am enrolled in doctoral studies in Martin Luther University College's PhD in Human Relationships program, field of Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy.
Prior to arriving at Luther, I completed a certificate in Thanatology (study of death and needs associated with dying) at Conestoga College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning, and the Advanced Hospice Palliative Care Education (AHPCE)/SWO Hospice Palliative Care Education.
Since 2011, I have been an active member of the Family Services Perth-Huron hospice program where I have journeyed with many of the dying and their families at end of life, and am a volunteer on-call spiritual care provider with Grand River Hospital’s spiritual care department.
I am a solitary practising Wiccan and an active member of the interfaith community at Martin Luther University College (formerly Waterloo Lutheran Seminary). I am affiliated with the Canadian Association for Spiritual Care (CASC), Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA), Association for Death Education and Counseling (ADEC) and the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association (CHPCA). I am a member of the Waterloo-Wellington LHIN’s spiritual care working group, and the communications officer for the Canadian Association for Spiritual Care’s Southwest Ontario Region executive committee.
