Education Philosophy Statement:

As a Field Educator with the Office of Field Education, Faculty of Social Work, University of Calgary, I am committed to providing exceptional learning experiences for social work students, field education community partners and field instructors.  I am also dedicated to increasing practicum placement capacity provincially and nationally while establishing placements that meet the needs of our diverse student population.  I work from an anti-oppressive, anti-racist and trauma-informed lens, with a focus on creating positive and transformational learning experiences for all students. I am committed to upholding social ork values where my practice framework in field education is grounded in respect, integrity, equity and collaboration.
