What brought you to Fanshawe: 

I am the longest serving faculty member at Fanshawe, maybe in Ontario, and possibly even in Canada.

I was an adult educator referring students to Fanshawe from other government programs from 1967 to 1970, then taught at the College from 1970 to 2016 - 46 years here and 49 total.

Tell us about your favourite Fanshawe experience: 

There are so many stories of amazing and impressive success of my graduates who overcame incredible obstacles - and my personal experience was being honored with the Distinguished Teacher's Award in 2012.

It was also particularly wonderful becoming part of a Fanshawe "family" of such talented and dedicated staff, faculty, and administration!
