Mrs. Orangetheory FitnessLangley

I’m an odd sort of scientist!

I grew up in a small town just outside of London, England, and in true English fashion, I had the opportunity to dance for the Queen during her golden Jubilee. I moved to Vancouver in 2010 and pursued my passion for Science. I completed a Master of Science degree at SFU and had the honour of being published in scientific journals. I feel that a crown is an excellent accessory for a lab coat! During my graduate studies, I volunteered for Let’s Talk Science, which exposed me to the magic that teachers can create, and here I am a few years later, teaching Science at Langley Fine Arts School!

Working at a fine arts school allows me to combine my passion for science with my love of song writing and music. Song writing is a journey that has allowed me to put into words emotions that I find difficult to say. It has helped me make cope with the complexities of life, including family illnesses and addictions, loss, and self-doubt.

My travels didn’t stop in Vancouver. I have been fortunate to experience the culture of 30 countries on 4 different continents. My scariest memory was battling a bat on a remote island off of Cambodia with no electricity!

These varied life experiences are what I want to use on my Mrs. BC journey. I want to educate people about how to take a multilevel approach to well-being. We need to take care of where we live, we need to take care of each other, and we need to take care of ourselves!
