She pursued a University degree from the University of Toronto, majoring in Anthropology and Ecology, leaving her art interests aside. In 1987, she became a constable with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and was transferred to Edmundston, New Brunswick. It was here that she met her husband and started to reconnect with her passion for the arts. After a six-year career in policing, she opened her own stained glass studio which she works in full time. She also devoted her time to redeveloping her painting skills in watercolour and oil, attending several workshops with artistes from Canada and the United States. She has recently taken part in group exhibitions in New Brunswick and France. Her work is exhibited permanently in the Galerie Da-Li in Grand Falls, New Brunswick. She is inspired by nature and does a lot of outdoor on-site painting.
