About me

Occupation Writer
Location Ottawa, Canada
Introduction I was born in Kapuskasing, Ontario and moved to Ottawa in 1978. I obtained a bachelor's degree in psychology and a master's degree in education from the University of Ottawa. My partial doctoral studies in adult learning deepened my research interest in women's learning styles. I published a book on women and learning with the University of Ottawa Press (in French, Les femmes en milieu universitaire) for which I was awarded the Laura Jamieson Prize in 2000, given by the Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of Women. In 2004-05, I hosted a television program on Rogers Television in Ottawa (French station) called D'hier à aujourd'hui. The program chronicled 150 years of Bytown and Ottawa history through stories of people, events and buildings that left their mark on local and national history. In March 2012, I published a book on health in French. Please visit www.unebonnesante.ca for more information about this book. You can also visit my production company at www.triyana.ca.
