As life unfolded, so came responsibility: managing a job, financial obligations, marriage, a child, the regular obstacles we all share but often pull us from a higher purpose. This purpose was found through the training and study of karate, a purpose that would have many facets and future roles in her life. In September of 2001, I opened the Straffordville location of Martial Arts Canada. From a small class of local students, MAC Straffordville has grown to a sizeable number and offers Tiny Tiger, Youth, Adult and Advanced classes. In 2011, my love of teaching in the dojo inspired me to return to school to pursue my life-long dream, a career in Education. “Martial Arts has taught me to set goals, be disciplined and work hard to achieve those goals”. I am both proud and deeply honoured to have been given the opportunity to pursue my passion for teaching karate as an affiliate class of Martial Arts Canada. I welcome students of all ages to join me and my enthusiastic team of black belts as they help students realize their goals and reach their fullest potential in a family oriented atmosphere.
