I primarily work from home! as a full-time online instructor for Okanagan College in the Health Care Assistant Program. I teach the theory online three days a week.

When not doing those two things, I have a side gig as a clinical counsellor for a not-for-profit organization that runs primary care in Kamloops, BC.
