Lifelong Learner

I have been learning for the past 43 years. Learning new things is fun to me. I may never ‘use‘ many of the skills I have learned, but that’s the cool thing about education… it’s an all-you-can-eat smorgasbord! Plus it’s always good to have options! 😉


I encourage everyone to focus on learning, to become lifelong learners, and enjoy the journey. I practice what I preach. All tolled, I’ve now completed 12+ years of post-secondary education!
