I teach mathematics in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Memorial University of Newfoundland. I have teaching experience in the United Kingdom, Bahrain and Canada. I have also taken a volunteer role in K-12 education. I served for over seven years as a school board member and elected officer in Newfoundland and was the founding webmaster (1997-98) of the Avalon East School Board.
I served as the chair of the School Council for Booth Memorial High School (1999-2001). I was provincial secretary of the Newfoundland and Labrador Federation of School Councils during 1999-2002 and life membership was conferred on me in 2005. I returned to the Booth Memorial School Council (2003-15) and the successor Waterford Valley High School Council (2015-16) as a community representative and as its secretary in both cases.
I now volunteer as a public representative (since 2018) and vice-chair (since 2020) of the Council of the College of Registered Nurses of Newfoundland and Labrador (CRNNL), which is the regulatory body for registered nurses in the province.
