"My desire to create effective, peaceful change in a world of uncertainty begins with making a positive impact in the lives of other people through educational gatherings which educate, inspire and empower others to create their own effective change.
I consider myself a global citizen and believe change starts at home. I've lived in communities across Canada, travelled to France, China, the USA, Jamaica, Cuba and other Caribbean islands. I currently reside in Edmonton, Alberta. My desire is to work with communities in Canadian provinces and territories as well as countries abroad."
