My name is Josephine. I grew up on the North Shore and graduated from Windsor Secondary school in the French immersion program. I am the youngest of five girls and was homeschooled from grades K-5. I am currently studying at Capilano University, finishing my degree in Early Childhood Education. I grew up around children and have always been very passionate working with them from a very young age. I enjoy the outdoors – including hiking, playing sports and physical activity. I am looking forward to meeting you all and getting to work with your children.
