I am a third-generation Albertan who inherited love for this land, respect for others and a generosity of spirit. I started teaching in 1971 and entered training for pastoral ministry in 1986, being ordained in 1989. I was an environmentalist by the age of 10 or 11, loving both nature and gardening. My training includes a Bachelorís degree in Biochemistry and Mathematics and have enough Classics and Biology courses for minors in those two disciplines as well; a Bachelor of Education Degree in Elementary Science and further courses in Secondary Science and Environmental and Outdoor Education; a Master of Divinity Degree taken in Halifax; a wide variety of other courses and events from community development to story telling. I served on a number of different community organizations including Ski St. Paul, the St. Paul Nuclear Awareness Society, Educators for Peace, Lottie Lake Community Association, Mother Teresa Habitat Institute of St. Paul, St. Paul Visual Arts Council, Gibbons Community Services Board, Wainwright Youth Initiatives Society and the Halifax Studentsí Housing Society. My political experience includes canvassing in the provincial election of 1978 and running as a candidate for the New Democrats in 1979. My life goal is working for a world where peace, respect, co-operation and love are seen as normative.
