About me

Gender FEMALE
Industry Engineering
Occupation Chemical Engineer
Location Oakville, Ontario, Canada
Introduction I have a Masters degree in Chemical Engineering and am currently a practicing professional engineer. I went down to part time in September 2013 so I could be there more for my family. Even though I was a full time engineer, knitting was always a huge part of my life. I taught knitting at the Living Arts Centre in Mississauga from Sep 2007 - Apr 2008. I was also a test knitter for Joanne Yordanou's book, Twelve Months of Knitting. I was recently involved in teaching knitting to Grades 6, 7, and 8 at River Oaks Public School in Oakville. Now, I am the knitting, crocheting, and jewelry instructor at the Michaels in Oakville.
