First generation Canadian, only child. Grew up in Toronto, started work out of high school. I was married, divorced and remarried gave up my career to raise my family. I have three amazing children and two extra special grandchildren. I went back into the work force when all my children went to school. I started as a part-time bank teller and worked my way up to manager. The years I spent at home with my children, running our household, managing our finances were the best years of my life. The experience I gained negotiating disputes between the children, encouraging them to be the best that they can be, teaching them how to be good people, managing a family budget on one income to provide the necessities for a family of five and to poland for family goals are all skills that are transferable. Not only did we provide stability, security and the opportunity for our children to just be children, I gained an incredible perspective and knowledge. We under estimate the power of human experiences as opposed to class room learning. My career continues in the management field using the skills I learned during my ten year on the job training as wife and mother.
I am passionate about human rights, compassion for fellow human beings and treating people with dignity and respect no matter who they are. People who are honorable and who act with integrity.
How can we make this world a better place for all, how can we destroy all forms of poverty, financial, emotional, educational? I believe we have the power to change this world so that we can truly enjoy the simpler things in life like our families and friends, nature, art and music. If we could do this and learn to distinguish between needs and wants, not depend on credit to buy us "happiness" and live within our means; just think about the freedom we would feel if we didn't have to keep working harder and harder to make money to pay debt.
