I grew up in Calgary where I began my degree in English at the University of Calgary. I completed my undergrad at York University. I continued my studies at Redeemer University College where I obtained a Bachelor of Education. I have taught various grades in private, public and international schools and also worked as an English as a Second Language teacher overseas. I completed my Special Education Specialist program and more recently worked as a Special Education Resource Teacher.
My faith journey began at a young age as I was born into a Christian family. My parents were instrumental in developing my faith. As a teen, I made a commitment to follow Christ. Through my life, I have experienced the amazing love and grace God gives to us. God has directed my path through multiple opportunities that have shaped my faith and prepared me for this calling.
I am married to Paul de Sousa and have two children. I enjoy reading, drawing and painting. I love tacos and coffee (although not at the same time).
