After an 8 year career making children’s cartoons, and teaching digital animation at Centennial College, I began to get an inkling that this was not the industry I was going to grow old in. Almost immediately after that thought entered my awareness, I accidentally (if there is such a thing) found myself on a path that would merge all of my skills and passions together as the Co-Visionary of The Groove EDGEucation.

On my journey to entrepreneurship, I discovered something about myself. With no university experience, I realized it was my “soft skills” that have been the key to my successes, and ultimately a more fulfilling life. My ability to be a positive, independent, and creative thinker, to believe in myself, take risks, and interact well with others, have been the driving forces behind my life’s achievements. When I began evolving our workshops for students of all different ages and demographics, I noticed something that fascinated me.

Turns out we are all born with these abilities, though most of us seem to lose them along the way to young adulthood. I was amazed to see how The GROOVE experience allowed students to re-discover and practice these valuable skills, and then apply them in everyday life. I am so thrilled to have an opportunity to facilitate this experience for all ages, speak about these messages and create resource material to infuse these practices into education creating healthier communities in BODY, BRAIN and BEING!
