What was the one thing that you learned as a child that you carry with you to this day?
Life is full of curveballs. You should always be aware of those around you and consider what other people may be going through. It is essential to see the world around us with a wider lens, to appreciate what others may be facing. Be humble.

What is your favourite way of spending time?
Exploring the channels of Bayfield Inlet on Georgian Bay in a canoe with my husband and our two children; especially if we have goldfish crackers as a snack.

What’s your favourite movie of all time?
Stand and Deliver.
