Dream, Innovate, Grow & Celebrate
“I believe that every person has greatness within and can perform at an exceptional level once they understand how to self-manage their own performance and are given the right tools. My purpose is to help grow each and every industry professional and have them find their greatness within, so they can have a successful career and change lives while significantly contributing to the success of their company and community.
Growing TOPP KIDS Out of School Clubs / Foundation for over a decade has given me the opportunity to personally work within the Early Learning Care sector, aligning myself with sector professionals, advocates and organizations. Through this involvement, I have found a way to create a new network for Early Learning professionals to gain the tools they need to find their greatness within. We have called our newest initiative ELCC & Community Development.
It is this experience coupled with my knowledge of service management, corporate training, business management, growth systems, and my own sector-specific professional development that allows me to provide a completely unique learning experience for all Early Learning professionals.
I am deeply passionate about delivering exceptional results for our industry, our professionals, their businesses, and the children they mentor. In the Early Learning community, I currently also sit as Chair on the SACDA Board, Chair the Alberta School Age Conference, and am the founder of the Lights on Afterschool Alberta initiative.”
