I believe very passionately in bringing awareness to sensitive issues that really need to be addressed in society including domestic violence, suicide, sexism, mental illness, racism, expectations set for females and other issues affecting women. I have always loved film and am a storyteller by nature, and I am very thankful I have had the opportunity to portray the issues that are important to me in a relatable way.
My medium is storytelling on screen. I have just about finished my education in Film Production at the University of Regina, during which I have completed my latest short film Stigma. The firm is currently in its film festival circuit and is about a woman struggling with the expectations of motherhood in society today. It touches upon her battle embracing the role of a wife and mother as well as trying to grasp her own sense of identity and sanity. I have also just finished working as a Special FX Coordinator on WolfCop 2!
My other jobs include Director of Marketing & Sales for a few companies, writing a script for a feature length film and running my company Living Off the Land Essentials where we make and sell all-natural, nontoxic, biodegradable home and health products with my co-owner. When I am not shooting a film, or working elsewhere, I am a world-traveler, yogi, dog rescuer, wine-lover and incessant bather, just trying to make the world a better place!
