I have worn a lot of hats over the years, including former Registered Nurse, owner of a head lice removal company, mom among many other titles.  I chose to become a First Aid Instructor to combine my passion for safety and ensuring my community would be a safe place for my children to grow up. In 2020, I took the Emergency Disaster Response training. Combining lots of unique learning activities with a solid base of knowledge makes the courses I run unique for all learner types.  My favourite things are coffee, taking my kids to hockey games and reading.  Looking forward to seeing you in one of my courses.  Tracey
