    I am the school counsellor in Valemount, BC where I work half-time at the elementary school and half-time at the secondary. I have a PhD in Health Sciences wherein I researched teacher resilience. I am an advocate for small and rural places and believe that mental health is best supported when we can share our experiences and be supported in ways that are individually supportive and collectively meaningful.
